RadSunpath is a software that allows you to create multiple Radiance images for specified date and compose them into animated gif image for sun path representation during the day.
RadSunpath's simple graphical interface enables user to define all input Radiance project data and calculation parameters, and start Radiance calculations for specified date and timestep. Final Radiance images represent sun and shadows position during the day. Images are converted into gif format and composed into animated gif, which can be previewed and explored within RadSunpath program.
Interface enables easy and undrestandable data input and output preview, and yet provides flexibile images calculation.
To make RadSunpath accessible to greater number of potential users program is developed for Windows and Linux based platforms.
In order to give back a little to the Radiance community which has been of invaluable help over the years of our Radiance use, we decided to release RadSunpath under GPL license so that anyone can freely use, distribute, and modify it.
So feel free to use, correct and improve it !
