Free CAD Files of 241 Major World Cities

Creating designs for cities all over the planet may have just gotten a whole lot easier – thanks to Brandon Liu, a Software Developer from San Francisco who used data fromOpenStreetMap to create .DXF CAD files of 241 major cities worldwide. These files areentirely free to download, and from San Francisco to Sydney , Buenos Aires toBeijing and Helsinki to Harare , most of the world’s major cities are included. The files do have some limitations, due to the way they were converted from online data (perhaps the most limiting is that roads are only marked by a single line), however the files give information on roads categorized from major to minor, buildings, railways, parks and bodies of water, with each element given its own layer on the drawing. Check out the links to all 241 files after the break, and visit Liu’s website here for more information. reference: http://www.archdaily.com/535628/free-cad-files-of-241-major-world-cities/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
