Architecture
Visualize the sunlight in and out of a house you wish to buy for every month of the year.

Predict the consequences of a shadow.

Think about the orientation of a terrace, imagine creating a new window.

Export your photos, including the drawing of the sun path, to your computer and integrate those pictures into a report (for example: photovoltaics). *
If, for example, you're visiting a house you wish to buy, take a lot of pictures with the application. *
You will then be able to visualize the sunshine at different moments of the year!

Shoot the inside from a window, and activate the drawing of the shadow.
You will then visualize what the window will light at a given date!
Photography
Plan your pictures according to the light effect you wish to create.

Plan when a subject (like a statue for instance) will be lit from the angle you have chosen.

Plan when that same subject will be aligned with the moon.

Use the calendar of the moon phases.

Plan when the sun will light a scene (and not be hidden by a mountain or a building).

Imagine the outline of shadows on the scene at a later date.

Use the agenda to plan your future pictures. *

This way, you will know when to return to the site to take your picture to the maximum effect. *

Use Google Maps to pinpoint its exact location. *
Activate the water mode. *

You can now tell where the sun or the moon will be...
...if reflected in water!
Drag or tap to change the date and thus pre-visualize the sun or moon trajectory in the weeks or months to come.

Drag or tap to change the time and make the sun run along its path on the selected day.

Sunrise and sunset times for the selected day are also displayed.
You can also set a particular date using the calendar.

Use the "now" button to get back quickly to the present date and time settings.
The blue arrows represent the summer and winter solstices. The sun path will always be -all year long- between those two. *

This way, you can immediately see that the sun on this picture will never be lower than the blue arrows.

This is also relevant for the drawing of the shadow.
Choose between displaying the sun, its shadow, or the moon.

The drawing of the shadow can help you predict where your own shadow will be.
If you are at the top of a building or a mountain, you will then be able to predict its shadow!
