CIE Tutorial on Urban Lighting Masterplanning

Today, urban lighting is important in terms of urban life, the use of the city by citizens and tourists, urban identity and to make cities visually attractive in night-time conditions. It is necessary to manage urban lighting, which covers two main groups “Utility Lighting” and “Architectural Lighting”, with a holistic approach and to bring the urban lighting into line with “Lighting Masterplans”.

In 2019, ISC Member the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) published CIE 234:2019 “A Guide to Urban Lighting Masterplanning”; this document was prepared to support this holistic approach and it is an important source of basic information and application examples.

In addition, issues such as energy efficiency, preservation of the environment in the context of sustainability in urban lighting applications also need consideration. In the era of digitalization that we are in, adaptive lighting constitutes an important application area within the concept of “Smart City”.
