Measuring Areas of Contours in the Ecotect Analysis Grid

When doing daylight simulation you might be interested in overall areas of day lit zones (e.g. for for LEED EQc 8.1 compliance you want to know about areas with more than 250 Lux of 2% daylight factor). I found this interesting tutorial today:
