ECan you imagine using such a design tool on any topic to evaluate existing shelter designs?(1=such simple tools might be very useful, 5=such simple tools are unlike to ever be useful)
FCan you imagine using such a tool on any topic to evaluate potential new shelter designs (remember, this is a general question about computer-based tools, not a question about a tool for daylight calculations or environmental impact assessment?(1=such simple tools might be very useful, 5=such simple tools are unlike to ever be useful)
GMight you ever recommend such a shelter design tool (on any topic) to your colleagues who work in the field?(1=yes, frequently; 5=never on any topic)
