Sun Seeker: 3D Augmented Reality Viewer by ozPDA

Sun Seeker: 3D Augmented Reality Viewer Screenshots


Provides a FLAT VIEW COMPASS and an AUGMENTED REALITY CAMERA 3-D VIEW showing the solar path, its hour intervals, its winter and summer solstice paths, rise and set times and more and a MAP VIEW showing solar direction for each daylight hour.

Ideal for
* Real Estate Buyers - for finding the sun exposure of properties you are considering
* Gardeners - for finding optimal planting locations for current and seasonal solar exposure
* Photographers - for planning optimal light conditions
* Architects - for getting a feel for the spatial variability of the solar angle throughout the year
* All Sun Lovers! To find the sun, even when it is hidden by clouds or walls

Main Features
* Uses GPS and magnetometer to find the correct solar position and path for your current location
* Flat compass view showing current solar position, diurnal solar angle and elevation (separated into day & night segments), shadow length ratio, atmospheric path thickness
* 3D augmented reality camera overlay view showing the sun's current position, its path with hour points marked
* Camera view also has an optional pointer to guide you towards the current location of the sun
* Map view showing solar direction arrows and elevations for each hour of the day
* Ability to choose any date and view solar path for that day
* Ability to choose any location on earth (includes 40,000+ cities or custom locations)
* Additional details including rise, set and culmination times, maximum elevation
* User option to include summer and winter solstice paths on both flat compass view and camera view

* IMPORTANT - Please ensure that Settings / Location Services / System Settings / Compass Calibration is switched ON. The app's 3D view will not work without it!
* The compass accuracy depends on having an undistorted magnetic field around your device. If you use it close to metallic objects or electrical equipment, directional accuracy may be impaired.

What's New in Version 2.3.1

* App now checks for incompatible system settings, and provides message to user on how to remedy
* Displaying the sun's rays on the map are now optional via an in-app setting

Customer Reviews

Working again! (5 stars)
Compass calibration was the culprit. Thanks for the update!

Does not download or work with new Update (1 star)
Please fix as it was great
Apple must have screwed something up

Despite numerous updates they have not fixed the program (1 star)
When I first installed this program on my IPhone 4 a year or so ago it was great. Then they updated it, and the 3d view has not worked since, despite many updates since.

Terrible quality control.
