QuVue is a plugin for uVSF(SkyView Ratio) Analysis. It is a new index for measuring visible sky ratios that overcomes the major hurdles of current methods. It calculates the actual three-dimensional projection area of obstacles onto a virtual hemisphere, considering humans’ downward view. QuVue is TRADEMARKED and its a free program.
For its development, methodology, and validation, can be found in following publications.
