This dataset contains three shapefiles with buildings, derived from three different VHR satellite images of 2005, 2010, and 2014 of the city of Goma in the eastern DR Congo. These layers have been generated by manually digitizing each individual building, based on visual interpretation of the imagery. These building layers serve as the base for quantitative analysis and mapping of urban development - and hence constitute the geodata the article is based on.
