Calculate Solar Radiation is a configuration of ArcGIS Pro that can be used by local government staff to calculate solar radiation maps for the wider community.
Solar radiation maps form the basis for assessing if buildings have potential for solar panel installation. Visualize solar radiation on the ground as well as on the roofs of buildings in a 3D scene and evaluate total solar radiation per selected roof area.
Calculate Solar Radiation requires specific software.
