Calculation of radiation view factors in urban areas

A Python tool developed during E. Medioni Master’s internship (ENS Cachan) at AREP, based upon Radiance and gmsh .

These programs are used to determine the view factors of a STL geometry, obtained e.g. from Sketchup.

Download here (just add the gmsh executable in the “Resources” folder)

Since, a Python library: pyViewFactor has been developped and published!
