A review of methods to evaluate and map the topographic variations of solar radiation leads to suggestions for improving mapping methods by a using slope facet divisions of an area rather than a grid-system of point location and b mapping heat load on an area rather than intensities. To provide more widespread observations of solar radiation the reliability of simple instruments needs to be tested. Testing in Barbados suggests that a bi-metallic actinograph is a useful all-purpose instrument. Author
