Sun angle

Recommended Posts

 

When using the sun angle to see how shadows will fall in a building.

Does the altitude of a location affect the shadows?

If so how would you compensate for this?

I would think not..  We are 93 million miles a way from the sun, so I don't think a mile or two will make any difference.  The latitude and longitude and the date you want to reflect the shadow is all I think you really need.  and maybe any obstruction, like another building, trees, mountains, etc...

Might be more concerned that those asphalt shingles might start to soften as you get closer to the sun.
