More about PVMapper Site Designer
PVMapper Site Designer is the desktop extension of the PVMapper online application. It is a free tool for designing and analyzing a specific site and evaluating the amount of power that can be produced from that site. It can be used for designing large scale photovoltaic (PV) systems based on numerous factors to reflect the characteristics of landscape specific to the area including site location, time zone, sun path, nearby weather station data, tilt and azimuth angle of the solar panels, and nearby objects such as trees and buildings that may obstruct or cast shadows over the panels.

The program allows you to map nearby structures and trees so that it may be able to calculate the impact of the shadows resulting from these objects. This gives a higher level of accuracy to the reports.
Professional users can easily import external GIS data into the application for more accurate reports.
The software divides the selected site according to the input specifications and generates a panel arrangement, which can be modified in terms of their directions and azimuthal angle to obtain the optimum arrangement for fixed panels.
