I took the map of Winnipeg's Zoo and brought it into Blender, it came in fine using the plug-in but there is no height information. All I see are red flat images of buildings, no 3d models. What do I need to do to get 3d models from map?

There are two issues:

The good thing about OSM is that you can rectify both issues easily (with a bit of time) yourself. Create yourself an account and start editing https://www.openstreetmap.org/login?referer=%2F
Adding building outlines is quite straight forward, for building heights see: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Simple_3D_buildings#Height
