Deleting data

From time to time you may wish to delete data from an umi bundle. This usually occurs when an imported data set is obsolete and needs to be replaced. (Umi results are not generally of appreciable size on disk; large bundle files are far more often caused by complex Rhino geometry.) Data deletion can be accomplished by clicking the "Delete data..." button in the Rhino results viewer, which will open the data deletion window:

Data is stored by "source". Shown here are four stored sources: data imported into the project via Rhino, metrics common to umi simulation results, and two particular umi simulation modules.

To delete data, simply check the checkboxes for the associated metrics and click "Delete selected data":

There is currently no way to remove data for just a particular building or set of buildings; either the entire metric goes, or none of it does.

In Short

Umi is a Rhino-based design environment for architects and urban planners interested in modeling the environmental performance of neighborhoods and cities with respect to operational and embodied energy use, walkability and daylighting potential. Since 2012, Umi has been  developed by the Sustainable Design Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with support from a National Science Foundation EFRI_SEED project, the MIT Energy Initiative, the Kuwait-MIT Center, the Center for Complex Engineering Systems (CCES) at KACST and MIT, Transsolar Climate Engineering and United Technologies Corporation. Further tool developed is now also being conducted at the Environmental Systems Lab at Cornell University.

A first public version of Umi was released during a public symposium on Sustainable Urban Design on May 6th 2013 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Version 2.0, which also includes an embodied energy module, was released on November 7th 2014.
