PSMA Australia has released an Application Programming Interface (API) that will allow access to data about any building in Australia with a roof area greater than nine square metres.

User can now use the beta version of the Buildings API for free via the PSMA Developer Portal, getting access to data on more than 8.8 million buildings, with more to come soon.

PSMA says the API enables the look up of building attributes using a single address. The attributes can include two and three dimensional building footprints, height and elevation, roof material and complexity, solar panels and adjacent swimming pools.

The company says this information could power a range of new applications like an app that tells users whether there is a pool at an address, a tool that automates quotes for roof restoration or software that helps couriers identify a building.
