Sun Surveyor Lite


Sun Surveyor Lite predicts and visualizes Sun, Sunrise and Sunset positions and times with a 3D Compass! Sun Surveyor Lite is useful for film and photography location scouting, solar panel positioning, architecture, gardening, real estate, Earth Science geekery, and more!

Use the interactive controls to:
- Visualize and plan for the "golden hour"
- Find the time of year and angle to shoot a location at Sunrise or Sunset
- Visualize the Sun throughout the day or through the year
- Study the sun shadow ratio and projection to visualize the shadows cast from the Sun

Features:
- Sun Bearing and Altitude, Sunrise & Sunset, Shadow Ratio, Dawn & Dusk Times
- Golden Hour and Blue Hour Times
- 3D Compass - A 3D projection of Sun positions and events overlaid onto a compass representing the device's bearing and orientation in the world
- Time Machine Slider - Visualize events for a single day, or watch the days get longer and shorter and the Sun's path in the sky change
- Compensation for Magnetic Declination

----------

Calibration Worked For Me If the full version works like this with more options it will be worth the cost and 5 stars for sure. This being the Lite version I understand it having the horrible looking Ads. Can't give 5 stars to something that ugly. But, I will say this app does exactly what it says. Works great on the Note 4.

Decent Compass calibration takes ages to do. My north pole becomes south vice versa. Frustrating. Everything gets wrong then.
