I’m working on an interesting project where I want to do solar analysis on a sphere representing the Earth.
I have the lat/long coordinates for a few points on the globe, and I want to find the correct EPW weather data based on the lat/long coordinate, dynamically.
The questions are:
Is this possible? (dynamic changing of EPW files). I was thinking maybe to interface with some public resource like https://app.ensims.com/epwmap.html, but I’m not sure this is such an easy set up… there might be a more direct way.
Is it possible to skip the EPW input and just provide lat/long + solar irradiance? Specifically for the Ladybug_Photovoltaics Surface component.
Any advice on how to go about this would be great.
