title A Web-based Virtual Lighting Simulator
source Thresholds - Design, Research, Education and Practice, in the Space Between the Physical and the Virtual [Proceedings of the 2002 Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design In Architecture / ISBN 1-880250-11-X] Pomona (California) 24-27 October 2002, pp. 269-277
summary This paper is about a web-based “virtual lighting simulator” that is intended to allow architects andlighting designers to quickly assess the effect of key parameters on the daylighting and lightingperformance in various space types. The virtual lighting simulator consists of a web-based interfacethat allows navigation through a large database of images and data, which were generated throughparametric lighting simulations. In its current form, the virtual lighting simulator has two main modules,one for daylighting and one for electric lighting.The daylighting module includes images and data for a small office space, varying most key daylightingparameters such as window size and orientation, glazing type, surface reflectance, sky conditions, andtime of the year. The electric lighting module includes images and data for five space types (classroom,small office, large open office, warehouse and small retail), varying key lighting parameters such as theelectric lighting system, surface reflectance, and dimming/switching.The computed images include perspectives and plans and are displayed in various formats to supportqualitative as well as quantitative assessment. The quantitative information is in the form of iso-contourlines superimposed on the images, as well as false color images and statistical information on workplane illuminance. The qualitative information includes images that are adjusted to account for thesensitivity and adaptation of the human eye. The paper also contains a section on the major technicalissues and their resolution.
