Introducing EdenApp – Lighting

7th July 2017 Lighting Projects 0

EdenApp – Lighting is a A�mobile phone application for teaching Architecture and interior design students how to measure and interpret daylight factor readings in buildings. It is being developed by Gillian Treacy and Ola Uduku at ESALA in collaboration with app developers associated with the University of Edinburgh from 2014.

In 2014, theA�a�?betaa�� version worked on the Android platform.

Here is the instruction at that time.

In 2015, the official version is released on Google Play and presentedA�at the Digital Tools for Learning Conference at the Institute for Academic Development (IAD) Edinburgh University 23rd April, 2015.

Here is the slides for the conference.

In 2016, we developed iOS version and released on Apple App Store. It was used as teaching tools for hundreds of undergraduate architecture students.


Edenapp Light provides real time illuminance data. These readings are accurate (with deviation of approx. 2%) and allow for experiential learning in both professional and educational contexts. As an example, point Daylight Factors can be calculated to understand variations in values throughout a room or spot illuminance values can be recorded to appreciate a lit environment and encourage numerical association with atmosphere.
