BRAILS version 2.0 is re-structured with modules for performing specific analyses of images. The expanded module library enables BRAILS' capability of predicting a larger spectrum of building attributes including occupancy type, roof type, foundation elevation, year built, soft-story, number of floors.

The new version also features a streamlined workflow, CityBuilder, for automatic creation of regional-scale building inventories by fusing multiple sources of data such as OpenStreetMap, Microsoft Footprint Data, and Google Maps, and extracting information from them using the modules.
