AbstractThis study involved modeling an existing space with two software packages under a variety of different conditions, and then comparing the results of the simulations against measured values. The software packages selected were Lightscape and Radiance because they are both "physically based" software, i.e., they purport to compute lighting quantities and represent the results as realistically rendered images. Lightscape and Radiance stand in contrast to the more typical "photorealistic" graphics software, which place emphasis on the appearance of the output rather than on the techniques used to derive it.
