Is it possible to adapt a synchronization workflow between an OSM (or any 2D data file) and CityEngine?

For example, an OSM file could be continually evolving and we would like to reflect these changes in CE through a sync/update feature, instead of manually deleting and reimporting the OSM file each time.

Hi @Bee-am,

There is currently no osm sync/update feature. However, you could potentially achieve this with python scripting relying on the osm_id stored as an object attribute on each imported shape.

Best,
Jonas

Thanks @JonasObertuefer - I'm not too familiar with Python scripting in CE, but will give it a shot. Is there any available resource that best describes (specifically) importing data using Python scripts?
