Shadow Patterns Located with a Programmable Calculator
Abstract:Approximate location of shadows at any time can be established rapidly with the aid of a programmable pocket calculator. The procedure can be applied in the field; only the calculator, a compass, and a clinometer are needed. It can also be applied in the office if a contour map and tree height data around a forest opening are available.
