An issue about view analysis

I saw “View to the Outdoors Through a Facade” file and in its description, it was said: "a quality view is defined as an area with a view factor angle of 20 degrees or greater (or 2% of this full 360 field of view). Actually, I’ve read that research paper about different views to the outdoor, but I can’t understand why we should use 2% to cover 20 degrees of 360 field of view? Isn’t correct to use 5.5%?

Thanks in advance

We need more information to be able to help. This should be a helpful reference:

this is my question too. can enyones help me? @chris


See here for the explanation:

5.5% is the correct number when the view analysis is purely 2D. But translating this into a 3D world requires a bit of interpretation.
