home / Light pollution maps

Light pollution is so high in most of our municipalities that we are prevented from seeing the whole of the night sky. It affects the habitat of species in close contact with humans in Spain, such as, the stork, the cuckoo, the swift, the nightingale or the swallow. It also has a visual impact which leads to changes in sleep patterns and the carrying out of routine tasks by humans.

Consultoría Lumínica, a pioneer in this market, has drawn up the first light pollution map in the city of  Vitoria-Gasteiz, which in graphic form shows us the visual impact of light pollution occurring in our municipalities. The elaboration process involved high-tech equipment, used and checked by the world renowned astronomy observatory the Instituto Astrofísico de Canarias (IAC),The Astrophysics Institute in the Canaries.

This equipment is installed in the mobile units that are used for carrying out energy audits of public illumination and are connected to the innovative computer system SAGAP, the Software Auditor and Manager for Public Lighting, which having processed the magnitudes, draws up a map in which we can see different municipal areas according to the levels of light pollution.read more...
