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:

  1. the building coverage is not particularly good (and what is there is not squared, sigh)
  2. the building polygons that are available don't have any height information available.

Random example https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/454489677

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
