ASSIST recommends... Outdoor Lighting
Published January 2009
This volume of ASSIST recommends provides a general overview of outdoor lighting, a fast-growing market for LEDs, as well as information about a new system for characterizing different light sources used in outdoor lighting.
The first issue
discusses the objectives and applications of outdoor lighting and factors to consider when planning an outdoor lighting installation.
The second issue discusses a new, unified system of photometry that would more accurately characterize different light sources at any light level, facilitating the specification of effective lighting systems for different applications, including those used outdoors at night.
