The Global Dynamic Exposure Model combines existing building exposure models that are usually spatially aggregated with crowd-sourced and worldwide building information to produce a new state of the art high-resolution model. One of its main sources of information is OpenBuildingMap (OBM, http://www.openbuildingmap.org/), a twin project that continuosly harvests data from OpenStreetMap (OSM, https://www.openstreetmap.org), cleanses it, processes additional building attributes and makes the results available to the community.

This prototype code focuses on Europe, as it merges the building exposure model of the new European Seismic Risk Model (ESRM20) (https://eu-risk.eucentre.it/exposure/), developed under the SERA project (http://www.sera-eu.org/), with building-by-building data from OBM. The ESRM20 model (also named as "SERA model" herein) is still to be officially released by the end of 2020, and we have been working so far with preliminary, in-progress data files.
