title An Interactive Computer Graphic Daylighting Design Tool
source 1981? pp. 99-103: graphs. includes bibliography
summary A fast simple interactive computer program which plots daylight curves has been developed for hands-on use by architects at the beginning of the design process. It calculates daylight illuminations levels using the well known IES/LOF method. The most important feature of the program is its friendly interface, which means that designers with no computer literacy can easily describe their building and quickly progress through as many design modifications as desired. The program is self-instructional, giving first-time users a demonstration of its various features, then inviting them to go back and put their own building. The program is written in FORTRAN IV and runs on Tektronix storage tube graphics terminal
