Special garden! Create your Sundial on the floor! DIY Plan Sundial customized on the floor, shows the watch (Ref G)

This dial on the ground is called an analemnatique dial. Often found in gardens or schools, it is fun because it's the observer giving time with her shadow, positioning on the date line.

First you need set location (flat and the Sun!) and set the size you want to give the dial, the ideal is approximately 1.5 m x 3 m, which coincides with the size of the shadow of a child.

Of course this model can also be made small scale, for example on a pedestal, and it moves a piece to tell time.

In some places there much larger.

Example made DIY: on the floor tarred Park, intentionally made very simple and discreet (invisible from a distance).

For this model of the dial says "free style", the most important point is the determination of North-South. Simple compass is not enough, lack of precision and offset the magnetic north.

To determine the North-South direction, atelier "The hours clear" send a file with easy to follow.

The realization of the decor will be made with materials of your choice, suitable for outdoor use (mosaic glued small objects, stones, exterior paint, burning plants!).

You will see on the dial:
* average hours of summer or winter
* the month (solstices, equinoxes, 12 zodiac signs)
* your decor

Simplicity of execution for this dial: only to carry design and decor!

The plan of the Sundial is supplied in A4 paper format and JPG format by email, convenient for expansions, with a certificate of measurement, a sheet that shows the function of each line, as well as the graph of the equation of time . You have to see the design on the floor.
