DeepSolar

Nationwide houseshold-level solar panel identification with deep learning. See details from our project website. We used Inception-v3 as the basic framework for image-level classification and developed greedy layerwise training for segmentation and localization. CNN model was developed with TensorFlow. slim package is credited to Google. train_classification.py and train_segmentation.py were developed with reference to inception. The inception library should be downloaded from this source. The model was developed with Python 2.7.

Usage Instructions:

git clone https://github.com/wangzhecheng/DeepSolar.git
cd DeepSolar

The model is fine-tuned based on the pre-trained model. The pre-trained model was trained on ImageNet 2012 Challenge training set. It can be downloaded as follows:

mkdir ckpt
cd ckpt
curl -O http://download.tensorflow.org/models/image/imagenet/inception-v3-2016-03-01.tar.gz
tar xzf inception-v3-2016-03-01.tar.gz

Then download pre-trained classification model and segmentation model for solar panel identification task.

curl -O https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/roofsolar/inception_classification.tar.gz
tar xzf inception_classification.tar.gz
curl -O https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/roofsolar/inception_segmentation.tar.gz
tar xzf inception_segmentation.tar.gz

Because the restriction of data sources, we are sorry that we cannot make the training and test set publicly available currently.

Install the required packages:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Firstly, you should generate data file path lists for training and evaluation. Here is the example:

python generate_data_list.py

Then you can train the CNN model for classification. You can start from ImageNet model:

python train_classification.py --fine_tune=False

or start from our well-trained model:

python train_classification.py --fine_tune=True

After training is done, test the model:

python test_classification.py

Our model can achieved overall recall 88.9% and overall precision 93.2% on test set. For training the segmentation branch, you should firstly train the first layer:

python train_segmentation.py --two_layers=False

Then train the second layer.

python train_segmentation.py --two_layers=True

After training is done, you can test the average absolute area error rate:

python test_segmentation.py

Our well-trained model can reach 27.3% for residential area and 18.8% for commercial area.
