The position of the sun is very important for nearly every land surveying job. I found this google maps mashup for you to check out which may come in handy (via Google Maps Mania)

SunCalc is a great Google Maps based tool for finding the position ofthe sun and the sunrise and sunset times for any location on the Earth.
The application auto-detects your current location but you also can drag
the marker or use the search function to move to a different location.

Areally great feature on this app is the time of day slider. The slider
lets you view the position of the sun for any time during the day. You
can even change the date to see the sun's position at different times of
the year.

SunCalc is a little app that shows sun movement and sunlight phases during the given day at the given location.You can see sun positions at sunrise,
specified time and sunset.
The thin orange curve is the current sun trajectory, and the yellow
area around is the variation of sun trajectories during the year. The
closer a point is to the center, the higher is the sun above the
horizon. The colors on the time slider above show sunlight coverage
during the day.



How would you like to see your blueprints in 3D? Autodesk Homestyler—a free and simple to use drag-and-drop design tool (found via Lifehacker).

Autodesk Homestyler offers easy planning for your home and garden designs. The drag and drop interface has components for walls, doors, room shapes, and even spiral stair cases. By the time you've worked your way through the banks of icons your creation will have windows,plants, even fruit on the counter. You can also save, export, and evenembed your creation in a blog or web site.

Autodesk Homestyler is free, create a free account to save your designs for future use. Have a favorite tool for sketching out your designs? Let's hear about it in the comments.


I am interested to see what kind of blueprints land surveyors can come up with using this tool...if you make some, please upload them and share in the comments below.
