Hi Pooya,

Thank you for your kind words.

The video for the recorded session should be up shortly. I will follow up with the link once it is live.

Hello Barbaros,

Thank you and all the team members for this great module.
This is a great contribution to the field.
I was wondering if you could upload the live expert tips session that was held by SimCenter on Jan. 27.

Hi frank, can do a quick call I think right now (in a few minutes) - my email is if you can send me a link!

Hi Sejin,

Thank you for your questions and your detailed post.

A1: Great question. You can download Sreet View images in many unique ways by creating a custom pipeline using FootprintHandler and ImHandler. Do you have a specific method in mind, such as using a list of addresses, etc.?

A2: I think segmentation results should always be post-processed before attribute extraction. For example, if the algorithm detects multiple doors, you can eliminate the smaller detection assuming there will always be one front door to a single-family building. As for windows, polygonization using edge detection could be another method. These ideas will eventually get implemented into BRAILS, but for now, what is in FacadeParser is what BRAILS currently offers.

A3: We have a prototype idea currently implemented in BRAILS based on limiting the field of view to just the building of interest. However, this feature is still undergoing testing and may not be released for another month or two.

I hope this helps!
we should probably have a zoom call .. i am free between 9-10am pacific this morning and 3:30-5pm later today .. are you avail for either of these time slots?
Hi yes so I loaded the examples in the tool, using the examples > manage examples. I reloaded everything and read some of the other comments, and made sure I had python 3.8 downloaded and everything works! Meaning I can run the example 1 Basic HAZUS on my computer. For future troubleshooting in case this helps anyone else, it also started working when I (finally) followed the advice to download the R2D files into a C:/SimCenter folder that forks directly off the main disk (instead of C:/Users/ekjones/SimCenter).

The only problem I have now is that it won't let me run anything at DesignSafe....when I try to click there, it has me sign in (my account there is 'jonesemm'), which opens the pop up to name the job, and then when I click 'submit' the popup goes away (after a delay). But then nothing shows up in "Get from DesignSafe".

Attached is a text document of the program output -- let me know if there's something I am missing! The good thing is my computer can run things pretty well but it would be super useful to have that resource.

Additionally, as a separate detail, I noticed that the button "Export to PDF" in the results pane also doesn't work.

looking for the data to run the files .. are you running one of the examples? or did you find the example online somewhere .. sorry for delay .. just needing to see if files are missing something if an old example.

I'm trying to get street-view building images using BRAILS and detect windows and doors from collected building images using FacadeParser.

Q1. It seems BRAILS finds building locations from the database of OpenStreetMap. If my buildings are not registered in the database of OpenStreetMap, is it impossible to get street-view images automatically using Google API?

Q2. As you can see in the attached image file, the accuracy of detecting windows and doors is great. However, there are still errors, for example, wrong identification of a door (the small door next to the actual door). Also, the detected center biggest window seem much smaller than its actual size. Is this common level of errors we can encounter while using FacadeParser? And, is there any other module or method to detect windows and doors?

Q3. There are three buildings in the attached image whereas I only need the segmented result of the center building. Do you have any idea to define the boundary of the center building and discard the images of other two buildings?

So yeah it's still refusing to work. I tried redownloading everything on a different computer, but it is also not working. It says "python not found" when I try to run it locally (even though I am 99% sure python is there, in the path and everything). WHen I try to run it on design safe it tells me that I am signed in but doesn't produce anything after showing the message that a path was first created then deleted.

I'm also working on windows-- not sure if this changes anything.
