The sky-view factor (SVF) is defined by the part of the visible sky (Ω) above a certain observation point as seen from a two-dimensional representation (see figure a). The algorithm computes the vertical elevation angle of the horizon γi in n (eight are presented here) directions to the specified radius R (b). Sky-view factor has been proposed to overcome ...

Your friend's objection that this visualization is "qualitative" is perhaps motivated by his recognition that the underlying data are inconsistently sampled, and that therefore the "data quality" is poor, and ...

Interesting question. It all depends on what you are measuring as a "use of space". It seems that the time the device is asleep is actually the most consistent and constant use of a single space, if you include sedentary states as a use of space. But it sounds like the device won't measure that. But if you discount sedentary states and define that as not ...
