As indicated in the question, I am looking for all kind of information about buildings in Switzerland, preferably using an API. This could include information like whether a restaurant or a bank is located in this building or (if possible) information about when it was built.

Two possible sources I have in mind are using the Google Places API or the OSM API. However,concerning the Google API, I am a little bit concerned that the daily requests are limited. But since I don't have much experience in this area, I would very much appreciate to benefit from your experience.

  • @ Jan Doggen Thanks for your comment. It would also be interesting to look at geographic differences but I am mostly interested in information for Switzerland. – Patrick Balada Nov 22 '17 at 13:26

    I would at least try mass downloading Swiss information from OSM and looking at the quality. For bulk data like this, I wouldn't recommend using the API. – Barry Carter Nov 26 '17 at 14:44
