At Insolation®, we're all about natural light in and around the places we treasure the most: our homes, gardens, and the places we celebrate life's important events.

Our goal is to provide the best possible tools for home buyers, real estate professionals and event planners to evaluate sun and shade.

The availability of natural light and shade is one of the most important factors when buying or renting a home or venue, whether to move to or to celebrate a holiday, wedding, or other event.

It's often hard to rely on your existing knowledge of how the sun moves across the year when viewing a property. The aspect and layout probably differ from your current home, trees and neighbouring buildings are unfamiliar, and the surrounding topography may be varied.

We're building tools to help you quickly and simply visualize how sunlight and shade will behave year-round, at a glance, so you can make the best possible real estate and venue decisions.

About Us

We're the team who built The Photographer's Ephemeris, one of the world's best-known natural light planning tools for photographers. We've been working with software to calculate and visualize the sun, moon, and stars since 2008.

Insolation is our newest product. We've rethought how best to visualize the movement of the sun to meet the needs of a different set of customers: people who need to understand year-round light, rather than only specific dates and times.
