This tutorial explains how to trigger ART-Archimed2 (jan 2013) on a vegetation scene from Simeo in interactive mode. See the Archimed2 documentation for further details.
To see how to create a vegetation scene in Simeo with the Edito module, see the related documentation.
Once your vegetation scene constructed or loaded, select the Simeo / ART-Archimed2 export plugin:
The Art-Archimed2 plugin configuration panel appears:
Configure the radiative models
Configure the scene parameters
Configure the incident radiation
Set the ART parameters
When ready, launch the process with Ok.
The progress is reported in a dialog box showing the messages from ART-Archimed2 and the images when produced if requested upper.
At the end of the process, the interceptedLight_MJ and irradiance_MJ_m2 calculated by ART-Archimed2 are written in 2 new attributes in all considered organs and the plants are rewritten on disk in their scene directory (in their .opf files).
If requested upper, a gradient color (green, yellow, orange, red) is calculated for each plant from irradiance_MJ_m2, ignoring the 5% lowest and biggest values, this color is written in the nodes standard 'Color' attribute.
To check visually the results with the Simeo renderers:
