Få høyere pris for huset ditt

Dersom du skal selge et hus, en tomt eller en leilighet med gode solforhold, kan det lønne seg å legge frem objektiv dokumentasjon. At megleren din skryter av kveldssolen har ikke så stor betydning; det gjør alle meglere, og kjøperne vet at det ikke alltid er til å stole på.

Med den programvaren vi har utviklet på Suncurves, kan du vise til en objektiv beregning av tidspunktet for årets seneste solnedgang. For mitt eget hus er dette nøyaktig klokken 22:23. Dette er beregnet ved hjelp av terrengdata fra Statens kartverk, som er tilgjengelig for hele Norge. Slik går solen over himmelen 22. juni 2015:

For å se den komplette analysen, kan du klikke her. Huset mitt har en solindeks for ettermiddagen på 94%. Det betyr at jeg får 94% av den kveldssolen jeg ville ha hatt dersom det overhodet ikke var noe terreng som skygget for solen.

Du kan enkelt lage en solanalyse for ditt eget sted, enten det er et hus, en hytte eller en tomt, ved å gå inn på søkesiden vår. Du kan også kjøpe en rapport i PDF-format i A4. Perfekt som vedlegg til salgsoppgaven til huset du skal selge. Eventuelt kan du kjøpe en pakke med 10 analyser som du kan bruke hvis du er på husjakt. Du stoler vel ikke blindt på det megleren sier?

Predicted sunset 17:41, observed sunset 17:41

I watched the sun set from my rooftop today and just had to take a picture. The direction is pretty much due south, and the sun is about to set over the mountain called Løvstakken (“the stack of leaves”, so called due to its shape, I guess).

The top picture shows the horizon as seen from my rooftop just before sunset today. The graph is a zoomed view of the computed horizon at suncurves.com.

The clear weather also enabled me to do some on-the-spot verification of the suncurves.com computations. My colleague Paul and I have made a program that computes the apparent horizon from any location worldwide. This horizon is then combined with data for the sun’s path across the sky. The intersections between the two define the times for sunrise and sunset for any day of the year. Our data is obviously a lot more accurate than the standard sunrise/sunset times that you find elsewhere on the web.

But just how accurate are our calculations? Today our program said that the sun would set at 17:41 (see the table in the picture), and that was spot-on for today. We’ve seen that our times are usually with a 5-minute margin of error. When you accumulate that over a full year, which we do to compute what we call a sun index, the results are very very reliable.

If you’d like, you can find your own sunset and sunrise times for places that you care about. The site is free to use as long as you register. Go on, give it a try in our location finder. Or click here to find a list of our demo pages for sites around the world.

And tell your friends about it if you like it – we think a lot of people out there would think that this is cool.

Sun Maps for Bergen, Norway

We’ve developed a program that computes the horizon at any location worldwide. This enables us to compute the actual sunrise and sunset times for each day of the year. Here’s a map that shows the local time of sunset in Bergen on 21 June, normally one of the longest day of the year:
