This paper describes novel high-performance visualization techniques for reviewing time dependent data common to building simulation. These techniques enable rapid inspection of trends and singularities, in the data that are difficult to ascertain  from conventional methods. In the case of daylight simulation, understanding when and where daylight is available in a proposed design can lead to significant energy savings in the resulting electric lighting systems of buildings. These new visualization techniques are introduced through three case studies.
