This site in Buckley, WA was VIRTUALLY scouted from Portland, OR using Google street view, sun plotting software and was created to pre-visualize the best TOD (time of day) for each view of the building.
New technologies in AR (augmented reality) on mobile devices can actually plot the course of the sun, even when it is not out, - at any time of year - and overlay it with photographs of the actual location. These tools and technologies are ideal for creating superior results and keeping budgets down through concise planning.
