Cartesian solar path Waldram Diagram

sunpath

#1

As an old Ecotect user I would like to plot shading result for a window/surface/room in a cartesian solar path diagram similar to the image attached. I would also like to be able to overlay any data like solar radiation, cooling need or outside temperature. I am thinking of writing a component that does this but before I do that I wonder if it would be possible to do this in Ladybug/Honeybee?

Sincerely
Max

Check this file which I created while ago for a similar discussion. The trick is to map altitude and azimuth angles to x, y values.
