Sun Azimuth Data 1.0 Description
Description: Using this script, you can generate a set of data regarding Sun Azimuth Positions at various instants of time for any location on Earth. This data can be used in many applications, like, in determination of orientation of any plane's azimuth from True North.
The syntax is 'sun_azimuth_data' (no arguments). It prompts for Observer's geodetic coordinates, observer's time zone and starting time [according to local standard time]. Then, it asks the Time Period and intervals for which Sun Azimuth data has to be generated. It creates a MS Word file containing Sun Azimuth data.
Author offers his acknowledgements for the script 'sun_position.m' by Vincent Roy, which returns the Sun Position data for a given observer location and time.
