USING VIDEO FOR ANALYZING DAYLIGHT SIMULATION TOOLS

Daniel Glaser, F. Smith, Barb Cutler

Abstract: This paper describes how socio-technical techniques can be employed to analyze video data of people using daylight simulation tools. We present and compare two different studies: the first is a classroom exercise using a heliodon, a classic daylighting analysis tool; and in the second a lighting professional is asked to use a new data visualization plot. We believe video is a powerful asset for interpreting the usability and effectiveness of these tools.
