VISUAL DETERMINATION OF PUBLIC LIGHTING CRITERIA IN THE HAGUE AND AMSTERDAM

VISUELE BEOORDELING VAN VERLICHTLINGSCRITERIA IN DEN HAAG EN AMSTERDAM

In 1969 several groups of observers appraised four aspects of public lighting installations in the Hague and Amsterdam. These appraisals have yielded very useful results, in particular with respect to the uniformity of the road surface luminance and the discomfort glare in the installation. It appears sensible to quote two separate requirements for the uniformity, expressed in luminance ratios; one requirement in view of the perceptibility of obstacles on the road, thus for safety of the traffic at night and the other one with regard to the visual aspect, thus for comfort of nighttine driving. The appraisals further showed that the glaremark, introduced by De Boer and Schreuder, correlates very well with the degree of discomfort glare in the installation. The study will be continued in order to determine limits on the criteria mentioned for different classes of public lighting.
