OpenSolar also allows you to upload your own imagery to use for designing systems. To upload an image, simply drag and drop the image onto the map in Studio mode. If you are unable to do this, then please ensure that the image file size is less than or equal to 1 MB.
Now you will be able to add panel groups and design your system(s) with this custom imagery as the backdrop.
Note: If your panels are not sized properly to the imagery you must have a known length in the imagery (ie this gutter is 1m, or there are panels in the image):
- Layout what you wish to use to correctly scale the image. (This could be a 1m line drawn with the +3D tools or a panel group).
- Click on the map view in the bottom part of the screen
- Click on
- Click and drag and/or zoom in and out in order to align the image
- Click on
