Is it legal to save data about private rooftop terraces in a Open Data set? I mean: location, characteristics, etc.

    It really depends on a lot of factors. The most important thing is probably the laws in your country, province/state, and municipality. – Trevor J. Smith Dec 28 '16 at 13:41

  • even if it is legal, think about the ethics here. people have a right to privacy. – albert Dec 31 '16 at 5:48

In Australia, a federal government agency (PSMA) has created a for-cost dataset called Geoscape that calculates information on private rooftops: specifically roof heights and materials.

I wanted to post this as an answer to show a precedent for private rooftop characteristics and locations, albeit for a cost.
