OpenStreetMap import for Landmark

Question

It would be nice if VW Landmark (and perhaps Architect as well) could import OpenStreetMap  (.osm) vector files.

This could be useful when starting work in an area for which one does not have GIS information from the client yet, but you do want to know where housing, roads etc. are. Then OpenStreetMap can come in handy. Also for mapping purposes it could come in handy.

Either Open StreetMap or Google Maps / Google Earth. Having to go into sketch up and then import into VW seems a bit too much...

 

I think it should be in Fundamentals, everybody may need to used it at some point...
