Abstract
Studies regarding solar energy at the neighbourhood scale always have to deal with the size and the complex geometry of a real built context. Three-dimensional modelling techniques allow visual reproduction of formal features and solar performance of a city portion. Nevertheless, the definition of the right level of detail (LOD) is always a crucial point when creating digital mock-ups. On the one hand, currently available computational resources are not totally able to suport the exact represent...
