Hi Again,

Thank you for updating Modelur to allow our own building naming convention... I am wondering if you can take it one step further to allow users to tag the buildings like you do with the uniquebuildingID?

I have attached a screen capture to illustration the point below







So Although I can now create my own labelling of building I can only show the uniqID in the model view, of course the parameter only has relevance to internal processes and not to the end users display!

Regards

Hi Gary,

if I understand you correctly, what you need is to tag Buildings with their names instead of UIDs when exporting control values?

Best,
Jernej

Hi Garry,

I don't know how fast we can implement this, but I'll talk to other team members and we'll consider doing this for one of our next Modelur releases.

Just to make sure I understand what your primary use of this feature would be and convey this information properly to other team members - you want to be able to show custom labeling of the buildings in the model view? Would showing 'Building name' parameter instead of uniqID (as shown in your picture) suffice or would you need to use some additional tag(s)?

Kind regards,
Žig

Hi ziga,

I was only thinking of a user ID, be it building name or meaningful code.. rather than the software generated id

Hi Gary,

And thanks for your feeback. We'll probably add this in our next release.

BTW, we've just released 0.5.8 which includes, among ohter, some new functionality added to land uses... You can now take them out of Whole Plot calculation or add negative parking lots to calculate deficit :-)

Best regards,
Jernej
