The Institute for Research in Construction (IRC) of the National Research
Council of Canada (NRC) has released the second beta version of SkyVision.
SkyVision is WindowsTM-based, analysis software that calculates the overall
optical characteristics and daylighting performance of conventional and
tubular skylights, and predicts their energy-saving potential.  SkyVision
accounts for the skylight shape and glazing type, geometry and surface
characteristics of the indoor space, lighting and shading controls, building
site location and prevailing climate.  The main additions to the first beta
version (released in March 2003) include: calculation of the monthly and
annual lighting energy savings, improvement of the Graphical User Interface,
fixes of reported bugs, and more weather files for Canadian cities.   The
final version will be available in summer 2004.  The software can be
downloaded free of charge from the IRC web site:

Comments/suggestions are very useful and appreciated, and can be directed to
