OGOS+ is a GIS data-based tool, which would offer urbanplanners, architects, and researchers visualisations of potential buildingmass in the form of 3D models. It compares the height of existingbuildings to the maximum permitted height by German zoning law andcalculates the potential building mass. To ensure minimum buildingfootprints it only calculates the densification potential on top of existingbuildings. It summarises information of the building potential for futureutilisation. The goal is an increase of urban density achieved with microinterventions.
