Use this open source application to explore empirical urban light data and evaluate accuracy of urban light simulations.
- View Empirical Urban Lighting Data (i.e. lux values from a vehicle sensor)
- View Empirical Urban Lighting Fixtures (i.e. light poles)
- Simulate Lighting Data from Models of Lighting Fixtures
- Compare Fit of Models to Observed Data

Insights from the project were implemented as an interactive simulation of pedestrian safety conditions at an intersection. This software requires a Tactile Matrix to operate.
- Place your own lighting fixtures at an intersection.
- View Heatmaps of (a) lighting conditions and (b) simulated safety conditions.
- Download Processing (2.2.1) - https://processing.org/download/
- Confirm Lastest Java is Installed https://java.com/en/download/mac_download.jsp
- Clone The Repository
- Run "FluxMap.pde" using Processing Application
- Run "TactileMatrix.pde" using Processing Application (Tactile Matrix hardware recommended but not necessary)
