Reliable prediction of daylight availability in indoor environments via computational simulation requires reasonably detailed and accurate sky luminance models. In this paper, we compare three calibration methods to derive detailed sky luminance maps from digital sky images. The results imply that digital sky imaging calibrated with parallel measurements of overall horizontal illuminance levels, can provide an efficient basis for the generation of detailed sky luminance models.
