Footcandle Levels Inside Building Outlines

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

When you are doing outdoor photometrics, you often do not want the footcandle levels to be displayed inside the building outline drawn with the light-obstructing objects. The extra 0’s both clutter the drawing and are included when calculating the statistics, resulting in incorrect values.

If the boundary is drawn using the “Insert Light-Obstructing Line” command, footcandle levels will appear inside the building.

If the boundary is drawn using the “Insert Light-Obstructing Rectangle” or “Insert Light-Obstructing Shape” commands and the starting elevation is 0, footcandle levels will not appear inside the building.
