When working with a model, from time to time we’ll need to load background images into the model.
Unlike GIS software, some modeling packages cannot handle large files. In this article we’ll show how to use ArcMap to reduce the size of an image file.
1. the bigger the cell size, the smaller the file size 2. changing the file type might change the compression ratio to reduce the size 3. use a higher compression ratio 4. you can zoom to a smaller area and only export the current extent
NOTE: XPSWMM only supports certain image type. You might need to test a few different options.
This blog is part of the Generative design series. To do generative design we need to run hundreds and thousands of simulations to discovery the best design. In this post, we’ll write the python code to,
create a model from a template with a new set of parameters
Coding is one of my hobbies, I’ll consider it a great day if I can find a way to get my job done by writing a piece of program. The more I write programs, the more I realize building models is very similar to building software.
If you’re serious about modeling, you’ll need to understand how the engine solves differential equations sooner or later. So the next time the engine does something strange, you’ll know what to look for.
Most people, I believe, are like me in that they cannot derive their intuition from equations; it…
