It is a computer simulation that allows design feedback and information sent to the design team in real-time on daylighting and thermal information. The GUI(3D parametric software) is linked to a validated analysis engine like radiance to create the simulation results. Daylight analysis allows information and ideas to flow as a design evolves and changes quickly.
