TerraExplorer offers several tools for displaying shadows and for calculating the sun-shadow ratio in a specified area, over a selected timespan:
- Global Shadow - Display a shadow effect for an entire scene, including terrain and all 3D models, objects, and buildings. You can select the precise color of the shadow to more accurately simulate the actual lighting conditions.
- Selection Shadow - Cast shadows for selected objects, to visualize the shadow effect of a particular object on surrounding buildings and terrain.
- Shadow Query - Calculate the sun-shadow ratio in a specified area, over a selected timespan. The output of the analysis is a point feature layer that color codes each point in the layer according to its sun-shadow ratio.
