Meet the team and read the story behind the Berlin-based company dedicated to bringing you the best building data.
The journey so far
It all started over a decade ago in 2012 when Jan developed OSM Buildings - a free and open source geospatial 3D viewer.
People loved the geospatial 3D viewer and the demand for the data powering the viewer skyrocketed, which led to the inception of 3D Buildings as a company in 2018.
As the company evolved, and Sebastian came on board as a director, it was important to mark this new era through the formal change to ONEGEO in 2022.
we're on a mission
The vast amount of available geospatial data can be overwhelming (or nearly impossible) to navigate, especially if you're not an expert. Data quality varies drastically, some attributes may or may not be included, the resolutions vary, there are different formats... you get the picture.
It's our mission to take all the confusion and countless variables out of the equation for you and provide you with exactly what you need:
It sounds simple, but a lot goes into it. And we get our kicks out of working with the data so you don't have to. Which means you can focus your time and enegery on what you do best and leave the data part to us.
