Dear Swonno,

 

You missed selecting X1 and X2, which is why you are having trouble adjusting your image.

 

When you import a ground image, it must include the scale. See my example:

image.thumb.png.cefbc69da02578e722c6d2967dbd72ba.png

Be sure to have the same value for Y1 and Y2. Also, don't forget to set the distance between X1 and X2 to match the screenshot of your Google Maps.

When you click, the size of your image will be adjusted.

Additionally, you can modify the opacity, but don't click on apply.

You must add a 2D image in PVsyst.

Dear Swonno,

 

I already shared an example. It's important to select X1 and X2 on the scale.

I'm sorry I think I overlooked the example.

Thank you for the reply, I followed your example. 

Now on this stage, It seems like there came another problem.

The ground picture doesn't make me look at the objects passing over.

Do you have any tips to handle this issue?

 

I batched pv module in 2D draw and I wanna match while I'm looking and comparing with 2D and topograph file.

Thank you for attention on this matter.

Dear Swonno,

Look at this picture and set the highlighted Z value to 0.

Dear Swonno,

When you take a screenshot of a Google satellite image, you must include the scale, which is in the right corner. You can read the distance on this scale, as shown in my example below:

image.thumb.jpeg.2e833dccd6622391212f47a6ce34f1f6.jpeg

You can see that my scale is 5 meters. This is how you determine the distance between x1 and x2.

Hello, 

 

first, thank you for your kind explanation.

but is it okay to not writing down image base width?

only typing x1, x2 distance is all good ?

and you said y1, y2 has to have same number but i'm wondering y1 y2 value has to be connected with x1, and x2 and vertical?

or is it okay with any number?

 

thank you for your attention on this matter.

Dear Swonno,

 

"If you have already entered a value in the 'Distance X1->X2' box, do not enter a value in the 'Image base width' box; you should define one or the other, not both.

After you have chosen X1 and X2, you can notice the values defined for Y1 and Y2. Simply copy the value from Y1 to Y2.

Muhammed Sarikaya
