Open Use case Pilsen – Solar equipment in the city park. Creating an account and logging into the application is not required to work with this use case. All features are available without logging in.
In the “Content” menu, layers from the data catalog are prepared and enabled: Plzen 3D trees, Plzen – 3D buildings and Plzen – 3D Terrain model:
Turn on “toggle shadows” and then “shadow settings” (wrench symbol) in the upper right corner of the map window:
On the left side of the application, you will see the options for displaying shadows:
Here you can select the moment of the day and the day of the year for which you want to see a shadow impact simulation by moving the sliders shown in the image above. This allows you to see places on the map that are in shade or in direct sunlight most of the day.
In our case, this way we can find the places in the park that are exposed to the sun as much as possible and are also suitable for the location of the selected device. We can mark these locations by drawing on the map and exporting the resulting map as a PDF file.
