Where are the building images saved?
« on: April 05, 2021, 01:44:16 AM »
Is there a way for me to save the building images (satellite, street view) that BRAILS uses to create its building inventory? Put in another way, where can I locate the images that correspond to each row in the BIM file? Thank you!

The images are saved in the working directory, you can specify it like this : workDir='path/to/my/dir'

By default the working directory is 'tmp' under the folder where you execute the code.
see
https://nheri-simcenter.github.io/BRAILS-Documentation/common/user_manual/workflow.html

Go to the working directory, -> images
you have StreetView and TopView folders.
The image's name indicates its location, for example: StreetViewx-93.163776x30.227985.png
which follows the pattern: StreetViewx[Longitude]x[Latitude].png
The longitude and Latitude is the centroid of its polygon, which you can find in the generated result file.
