I try to determine the view to outdoor for four occupants in an office room. I assume that all the occupants look under 45 degree to the façade. I want to quantify the view to the outdoor with the “view to outdoor”- component in ladybug, but I don’t understand the results.
I have an office room with four occupants and vertical blinds as shading system. The room contains one big window in the south façade.
The vertical blinds have four possible states and I would to determine the view for each occupants and for each possible state. The squares in the image below represent the occupants.
I first determined the view for the occupants without shading system. But the view for the occupants 1 and 2 (see image below) is very different, but I would expect a more equal view.
Could anyone explain the “view to outdoor”-component and maybe give me advice how I can use this component to achieve my goal (correctly quantify the view for each of the four occupants and for different shading states)
