The sunPATH software tracks the position of the Sun for any day, anywhere on earth. The program includes a comprehensive database of over 39,000 locations world wide. The database includes latitude, longitude, time zone, daylight savings time and magnetic declination information for each location. Users select a location without the need to enter any information other than the date range. Expensive GPS equipment is not required. You are able to add your own locations to this database with sunPATH helping determine the coordinates and other location information. sunPATH is an affordable, friendly, easy-to-use program with extensive on-screen documentation. A 50+ page on-screen User Guide with useful supplemental information is also provided. sunPATH was designed by a professional camera person who understands the needs and uses of such a tool. sunPATH displays the Sun's information on your screen and in a printed report. The information includes a daily summary (sunrise, sunset, Sun hours and estimated "Magic Hour" times), the Sun's position in fifteen minute intervals with shadow length information and a graphical plot of the Sun's path during the day. With the printed reports, you do not need to take your computer on location, saving it from dust storms, rain, damage or theft. You and your crew can quickly refer to your report, no need to run the program each time you wish to predict the Sun's position. With sunPATH, Directors of Photography, Directors, Producers, Assistant Directors, Photographers and Location Managers will accurately predict the Sun's position worldwide. This can be a tremendous aid in production scheduling and set construction allowing them to efficiently manage the limited and expensive production time.
