Mapping Sunlight


This interactive map, from Dumpark, reveals the average number of hours of direct sunlight received each day throughout Wellington City in New Zealand.

The number of hours of direct sunlight is affected by topographical features, such as hills, and physical objects, such as buildings and trees. To measure the number of hours of direct sunlight Dunpark used data elevation models of Wellington City combined with building footprint data of the city.

The Hours of Direct Sunlight map shows the yearly average number of hours of direct sunlight received each day. It is also possible to view layers showing the average number of hours received in the mornings and in the afternoons.
