We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
AnisView is an educational software to visualize the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) using one of the two radiative transfer models RPV and MRPV. AnisView has the following features: Graphic display modes: Geometry: an interactive mode to visualize the user-driven illumination and observation geometry. Single BRF value: BRF as a function of the selected geometry and BRDF model parameters. 2-D plot: a cross-cut or plane along a specified azimuthal direction. 2-D contour plot: circular view of the BRDF field including interactive readout of BRF values. 3-D rectangular/polar plot: 3-D visualization of the BRDF field.
