The Calculation Viewer
Licaso opens with a single rendered view. This is the "Main View". You can interact with this view using Licaso's many tools as you explore your model. Licaso provides the ability to create additional views from the Add View menu, either rendered or otherwise which you will employ to document your work. All views are visible in the calculation viewer by clicking on the tabs across the top of the screen.
The default Main view display is a radiosity-based visualization showing the date and time as set in the View Display Settings panel. Once the calculation process is complete, the dates and times can be adjusted to view individual samples. All samples can be viewed in an animation as well.
The viewer is fully interactive and will look very familiar to ElumTools and AGi32 users as many of the controls are similar, if not identical. The default visualization is based on the diffuse luminance of the model surfaces. The display can be adjusted to illuminance (incident light) and both conditions can be inspected in Pseudocolor. The radiosity meshing can be seen using the Mesh control.

All available daylight metrics can be superimposed on a Rendered view, or seen separately in a Spatial Map view. Metrics can be view as Spatial map shading with calculation point values and isoline contours. Simply select the metric from the View Display Settings panel and enable the Contours. Click the ellipsis (...) to adjust the contour settings.
