 +With a large number of properties where daylight is the principal source of light for visitors to see the interiors and contents, the National Trust initiated a research programme in 2013 to better understand daylight performance. The programme seeks to bring together the latest in both illuminance capture techniques with climate-based simulation to refine and develop its systems of daylight management. ​
 +
 +Simulation is being used to explore the consequence of changes in the opening hours on the patterns of cumulative annual daylight exposure experienced by surfaces in the Smoking Room at Ickworth House in Suffolk. Additionally,​ High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging is being used as a means to derive the daylight illumination field (i.e. the light falling onto the surfaces) directly from digital photographs. Thus it becomes possible to measure the light exposure across all the surfaces ‘seen’ by the camera. Deployed in the Smoking Room at Ickworth House this project is believed to be the first use of the HDR technique to measure the long-term light exposure in buildings.
