Solar Impact and Artificial Light Pollution Analysis

We specialize in showing how future developments will impact their surroundings. We can analyze and show the visual impact, solar impact, and even the impact to the surrounding vegetation.

Solar Analysis and impact of future developments

Digital Design & Imaging Service specializes in visual impact studies, including analyzing and illustrating the general visual impacts caused by any proposed structure in terms of shadows cast during the day and artificial light pollution at night. These studies, usually referred to as solar impact studies and artificial light pollution analysis, are often overlooked until the proposed structure has been built. However, they are an important part of the visual impact of a proposed structure. Even structures that have a positive visual impact on their surroundings can have a detrimental solar or artificial light impact. Take for example any iconic skyscraper, which enhances the city skyline, and is around 1000′ tall. During the winter a shadow can be more than twice the height of an object. This means that even if you lived or worked 9 city blocks away from it, you may still be residing in it’s shadow for a good portion of each day.
Specializing in aerial photography, viewshed analysis, visual impact surveys, and balloon tests and drone tests for marketing, zoning, site planning, and architectural design.
