# gde-core
Creates the Global Dynamic Exposure (GDE) model.
## Description
`gde-core` creates the Global Dynamic Exposure (GDE) model by bringing
- aggregated exposure models distributed on zoom level 18 tiles (output
of [gde-importer](,
- OpenBuildingMap (OBM) buildings (output of
- automatically-calculated completeness of OpenBuildingMap (OBM) (output of
## Installing gde-core
### Software dependencies
- Python 3.7, 3.8 or 3.9
### Python libraries
- `numpy`
- `shapely`
- `gde-importer`
### Install
git clone
cd gde-core
pip3 install -e .
## Preparation
### Run the previous steps
`gde-core` requires that the following software be run in advance for the geographic area and
input aggregated exposure models of interest:
1. [rabotnik-obm](
processing of [OpenStreetMap (OSM)]( data to generate the
`OpenBuildingMap` (OBM).
2. [obmgapanalysis](
estimation of completeness of `OpenBuildingMap` by means of an automatic comparison between
remote-sensing-derived built-up area (from the
[Global Human Settlement Layer]( and
OBM-derived built-up area.
3. [gde-importer](
import of aggregated exposure models and their distribution on zoom level 18 tiles.
This requisite implies as well that the database tables that are output of these software exist
and are populated with relevant data. The databases associated with these software are:
- [GDE Tiles](
- [OBM Tiles](
- [OBM Buildings](
### Configuration
Copy the file `config_example.yml` to your working directory as `config.yml` and provide the
necessary parameters. Required parameters are:
- `model_name`: Name of the input aggregated exposure model to be processed. It needs to have
been imported by
- `database_gde_tiles`: Credentials for the
[GDE Tiles](
database where information on the GDE tiles is stored.
- `exposure_entities_to_run`: List of names of exposure entities for which the code will be run.
Currently supported options:
- "all": The list of names associated with `model_name` will be retrieved from the
[GDE Tiles](
- A comma-space-separated list of entity names: This list of names will be used.
- A full path to a .txt or .csv file: The list of names will be retrieved from the indicated
.txt/.csv file.
- `exposure_entities_code`: Either "ISO3" or a nested structure with exposure entities names
and 3-character codes. When running `model_name=esrm20`, "ISO3" is the preferred option.
- `occupancies_to_run`: List of occupancies for which the code will be run, separated by ", "
(comma and space). They need to exist for the indicated `exposure format`. Currently supported
values: residential, commercial, industrial.
## Running gde-core
From the working directory (where you placed `config.yml`), run the code by typing:
