This study proposes a novel method of solar geometry by considering the potential application of point cloud data combined with the simulation of solar radiation. With the support of geometric and radiometric information stored in the point cloud such as position information (XYZ) color information (RGB), and reflection intensity (I), architects may compensate for missing information on the existing context during the simulation, especially due to the limited capacity of current 3D modelling sites. However, the dataset often comes in the format of unstructured point cloud data retrieved from merged data scans and as a result, the radiometric information is difficult to occupy due to multiple reference points. Through a 3D subtractive pro-cedure, this study not only examines volumetric samples of the three-dimensional matrix that fulfills the criteria of solar envelopes but also finds the optimal values of the merged data scan for input of solar radiation. In this regard, simulation of solar radiation contributes to identifying the most and the least exposed areas to the sun in existing contexts. This provides information related to visible sun hours that can be used to perform ray tracing analysis between the proposed 3D plot and surrounding contexts. Our proposed method ultimately helps architects not only generate solar geometry based on real contextual settings but also to understand comprehensively the microclimate conditions of the design context.
