Facades

How it works:

Facades automatically matches Streetviews to building coordinates (Lat/Lon) and then creates rectangular photos of the building facades.
The building photos can then be added to your existing GIS system to aid documentation.
For the building coordinates (Lat/Lon), point layer data in SHP, GDB, TAB, KML, GeoJSON and GML formats is accepted.

  • With your GIS program (e.g. ArcGIS or QGIS) create point data for the buildings you would like to document. Formats supported: SHP, GDB, TAB, KML, GeoJSON, and GML.
  • Use the Facades program to load both the point data layer and the Streetview project output folder.
  • Use the Facades program to create the Streetview layer, selecting only one Streetview right in front of each building.
  • Add the Streetview layer to your GIS program and review.
  • Use the Facades program to create Streetviews.
