Has anyone already converted the Microsoft Building Footprints to Feature Class? My Army Corps client is looking to do the entire US but wants to make sure it is not already done. If you know of any datasets, please point me to them.
I highly doubt it given the size of the data set...
but there are some tools and links
GitHub - germrothdaniel/MicrosoftBuildingsToFeatureclass
And in this link
Texas Building Footprints
there are references to these links....
and the data
GitHub - Microsoft/USBuildingFootprints: Computer generated building footprints for the United States
The latter will give you an idea of the unzip geojson size. Probably a state-by-state conversion would be recommended
Thanks Dan, I will pass this along.

Debbie, post back if the links were helpful
I've tried this tool from two different sources and in both scenarios I get this error. Has anyone else ran into this?
looks like that script was written for python 2.7 and it is being run in python 3.x since print is now a function and you need to enclose what you intend to print inside round brackets.. ie print(stuff) instead of print stuff
So either the script needs to be corrected or it needs to be run under a python 2.7 environment
