Imeasure Systems Releases iPhone-Based Shade-Analysis Tool

Vancouver, British Columbia-based Imeasure Systems, a developer of software tools, has introduced Sun Tracker, a new product designed for conducting on site shade analysis.

Sun Tracker uses the compass and inclinometer functions of the Apple iPhone to trace the local skyline. Together with built-in sun positioning algorithms, Sun Tracker can perform on-site shade analysis in seconds, the company says.

Running on a standard platform also allows the product to be introduced at an unprecedented price point, Imeasure Systems adds. Sun Tracker is available for immediate download from Apple's App Store.
