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.

If there is more than one example on the page, please provide the link and specify which one you are referring to.

There has been a slight change in the way BRAILS stores building imagery. It now saves street-level and aerial imagery in your working directory in the tmp/images/street and tmp/images/satellite folders, respectively.

I hope this helps!
