Has anyone had success in converting the Microsoft building footprints data for Texas to featureclass? I tried several times using the conversion tool box but it keeps on crashing.
Update: I tested importing North Dakota using the JSON to Features GP tool and it worked fine, no crashes.
I would install Pro 2.2.2 and then rested.
This works: https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=9da0f8ae5fee45aca11bf77f712884c8
Requires ArcGIS Pro 2.2 and ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension, or the FME 2018 product.
It worked great for me!
Thank you will try that!
I don't have the Data Interoperability Extension. I tried to use a trial version of the FME 2018 product but that is crashing too :-( . Were you able to extract the Texas data ?
Sona Sunny I was able to do this with Data Interop extension. I did NOT install FME from their site.
Performance issue when converting large GeoJSON files.
Release notes for ArcGIS Pro 2.2—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop
The latest patch can be downloaded/installed via the Pro built-in updater or via My Esri. Once installed and retry the workflow, please report back. Thanks!
It worked!!! Pro 2.2.2 is the Winner! It took 50 min to convert the Texas Geojson file to a File geotabase feature Class. Thank you George for letting me know of the latest patch! I had almost given up on this dataset as FME also crashed and that's when saw your post!
Thanks for the update! I am glad to hear that it is working for you now.
I used FME, you need something more robust for the large dataset.
Does the documentation include the date of data capture so you know how recent the data is?
GitHub - Microsoft/USBuildingFootprints: Computer generated building footprints for the United States
The vintage of the footprints depends on the vintage of the underlying imagery. Because Bing Imagery is a composite of multiple sources it is difficult to know the exact dates for individual pieces of data.
Were you able to extract the Texas Building Footprints using the FME ?
Texas was a success via FME version of the ImportBuildingGeoJSON tool published on AGOL. Patience is key.
bruce_harold for the win.
