Description
Abstract
                            Buildings  is a polygon shapefile which contains the City of Bellingham's structures.  Attributes include square footage, values, names where appropriate.     Building polygons are updated as new aerial photos become available on an irregular basis. Additional notes: Floor counts are derived from multiple sources:  Residential Primary buildings: assessor "COB_BLD_TYPE" database;  Residential Secondary buildings (sheds, etc.): Oblique Air Photos;  Commercial & Industrial Buildings: Permit records where available, otherwise from Oblique Air Photos.
                          
Purpose
                            The purpose of the buildings data is to show the location of structures within the City of Bellingham mapping area for primarily cartographic purposes.  The data can be used for three dimensional (3D) modeling by expanding the height of the building based on the number of stories.
                          
Supplemental Information
                            Attributes pertaining to square footage, year built, and other assessor data are joined at the time of creating the polygon, but not maintained after that.  Check the assessor's record for most up to date info.
