Damage assessment over an arbitrary area with computer vision

CV derived fire damage

This video tutorial shows how to use the Vexcel API and Azure’s Custom Vision service to find damage after a fire or wind catastrophe across an arbitrary area. You can download the app from the previous post where we looked at how to analyze specific properties coming from a CSV file. The big difference here is that you don’t need a list of properties to analyze. instead you set the corners of a bounding box, and all of the properties within the box are analyzed. Microsoft’s building footprint files are used to find the candidate properties to test. In the image above, the white pins represent ALL of the building structures in the tested region. Each was run through the damage model with the structures determined to be destroyed showing as red pins.

Try it out and send your feedback along. you will need to have a Vexcel API account in order to run the app.
