Scraping google earth

Hello! My goal is to label images from google earth or google maps for pools and then train a model that can locate houses with pools for a given city.

Do you have any advice for scraping an area in google earth/google maps to export image files?

Thank you,

Hey hey

I was thinking of doing something similar. I want do do segmentation though rather than detection so that I can also get an idea of the average size/shape.

Getting the image data - the below package is built to get the map tiles

labeling the training data, seems we’d need to create geojson records to show where the pools are.

There are these guys who actually use FastAi as part of their process, but they’re using ArcGIS and it’s PC only and looks expensive.

Let me know how yoiu get on!
