Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to get information out of a sun shadow volume? I created some sun shadow volumes from a building, but now I would like to know for instance how much percent of the day a point catches shadow. Is there a tool in ArcScene to calculate  that?

Another problem that I've got is when I execute a sun shadow volume the shadow volume is going through other buildings. Is there a solution to cast the shadow on the ground and the other buildings instead of going right through it?

Hi, I am doing a project that create the shadow from a 3D building model.
Therefore, I also want to know is there any tool used for analyzing how much percent or time that a point or a area catch shadow.

Thanks.

Ying
