the LBL simulation engine for daylight and electric lighting system
analysis in buildings.

- "SkyVision predicts skylight performance for any given day and for
various types of skylights. "
- "is a RADIANCE-based dynamic daylight simulation method to
calculate the short-time-step development of indoor illuminances in
buildings based on hourly mean direct and diffuse irradiance
LESO-DIAL - Leso-DIAL gives architects relevant information
regarding the use of daylight at the beginning of the building
ADELINE - "is
an integrated lighting design computer tool developed by an
international research team within the framework of the
International Energy Agency (IEA) Solar Heating and Coolong
Programme Task 12. ADELINE provides architects and engineers with
accurate information about the behaviour and the performance of
indoor lighting systems. Both natural and electrical lighting
problems can be solved, in simple rooms or the most complex spaces."
"is a highly accurate ray-tracing software system for UNIX computers
that is licensed at no cost to users for non-commercial use;
commercial use licenses including distribution rights are available
for a fee. Radiance was developed with primary support from the U.S.
Department Of Energy and additional support from the Swiss Federal
Government. It is copyrighted by the Regents of the University of
