The Photographer's Ephemeris

The Photographer's Ephemeris


The Photographer's Ephemeris (TPE) helps you plan outdoor photography shoots.

TPE is a map-centric sun and moon calculator: see how the light will fall on the land, be it day or night, for almost anywhere on earth.

Ideal for landscape, nature, travel and outdoor photographers, TPE's map-based approach means you can search for any place name on the planet or position the map pin exactly where you want it.

Advanced features include: automatic time zone and elevation detection, correction for atmospheric refraction and height above the horizon. You can even determine when the sun or moon will be visible from behind nearby hills and mountains.

Key features:

- Time and direction of sunrise and sunset
- Time and direction of moonrise and moonset
- Phase of the moon and % illumination
- Times of civil, nautical and astronomical twilight
- Graphical display on a map (Standard, Satellite, Hybrid, Terrain)
- Rotate and tilt the map for the optimal view
- Compass-based auto-rotation of the map
- Movable map pins - drag and drop the pin exactly where you need it
- Search for locations by place name or enter coordinates directly
- Save any location you want - no fixed lists
- All features available in both portrait and landscape mode
- Does not require network connection for rise/set time, azimuths and sun/moon position

Advanced features:

- Automatic time zone detection for any location on earth
- Determines elevation above sea level
- View azimuth and altitude of sun/moon for any time of day/night
- Distance, bearing and elevation angle between any two points
- Import locations from KML files

Geek features:

- Find when the sun/moon will appear from behind a hill
- Compensation for atmospheric refraction
- Compensation for elevation above the horizon

Note:
- Maps and elevation-based calculations require a data connection to function
- Locations outside ±80° latitude (very far north and south) are unsupported
- Map auto-rotate requires a compatible device (with magnetometer and accelerometer)
- Requires that you have Google Play Services and Google Maps installed on your device. Most devices already have both installed. TPE will prompt you to install these if they are missing.

Please visit http://photoephemeris.com/support#android_support if you have any trouble installing Google Play Services.

TPE desktop version has been a favorite of photographers around the world for four years. Now you can carry it with you.

Recent changes:
- Locations can be imported from KML files (Android 3.0+, download the file to your device first, then choose Locations/Import)
- Fix: geodetics information would not update after moving one of the map pins in certain circumstances
- Other bug fixes
- SDKs updated

This update requires Android 2.3.3 or higher.

Finally, the absolute Gold Standard sun and moon predictor for photographers is available for Android! As a landscape photographer and long-time TPE user, I can say it's been a long wait---but well worth it. All of the features from the desktop version seem to be present and fully functional. UI looks better than the iPhone version. THANK YOU Stephen Trainor! It's about time! ;) Droid X, stock GB 2.3.3

Mediocre Search When I search by na me al ong with locality & state, TPE can't find the place even though location is named on map. If I hadn't paid for TPE, I would probably delete this app. EXAMPLE 1: Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center [with/without BREC before name], Baton Rouge, LA. EXAMPLE 2: Blackwater Conservation Area Central/Central City [actual name Central, but labeled as Central City by one or more mapping system], LA. EXAMPLE 3: Port Hudson State Historic Site, Jackson, LA.

Really Useful! This app works really well for all the locations I've needed with all the info needed for sun position, rise & set - plus the moon too1 Very impressed!
