Figure 1: A screenshot of the Sun-Path on Map app running inside a web browser.
This is a small web app I’ve been wanting to do for some time. Obviously this is very much inspired by others such as SunCalc and SunEarthTools. However I have tried to make a more interactive, configurable and mobile-friendly version with better time zone selection.
To move the sun-path diagram around, simply click and drag the location marker within the world map. It should be fast enough even on a phone or tablet to update in close to real time. You can also double-click or double-tap anywhere within the map to set the position explicitly.
If you intend using this for a particular project or in a demonstration, you can edit all the various app settings using the Cope/Paste as JSON… item in the menu and then copy/paste them into a text file. You can then load or drag/drop the file into the page whenever you need. You can also save the new settings as the default start-up values using the same menu.
Added ‘Settings Data’ () menu with options to import, view and edit application settings.
Added ability to store and reset current settings as the default startup configuration.
- Initial release.
