New Beirut Built Environment Database (BBED) Layers Available for Download
As a part of its mission to expand knowledge on the city’s urbanization in the Greater Beirut Area, the Beirut Urban Lab has updated its Beirut Built Environment Database (BBED) platform with downloadable layers that include building attributes, municipal boundaries and topographic features.
The BBED aims to provide easy-to-share, free to download files as a strategy to generate collaborations, partnerships, and discussions about the rapid transformations of the city. It serves as a springboard for more advanced explorations of urban trends.
On the home page, click on the “Select” tool next to the “Information” button. From there, you can select the sections you want to download from the chosen layers. With that tool, you can download the selected elements in GEOJson, Json, or CSV formats.
