Purpose of use
Calculate correct position of solar panel. Excellent chart, thank you!
Comment/Request
I suggest you add explanation of "time zone" since it does not adjust automatically based on longitude. For example USA Eastern time zone normal designation is "GMT-5:00" but you want me to enter "19" ... How is the user supposed to know this?

Purpose of use
Looking for hours of sunlight available to a tree given the sunrise, sunset and angle.
I have found charts for the first two and the last one but not together.
Is this possible?

Purpose of use
to calculate the sun elevation angle prior installation of PV panels
[10]  2018/05/05 21:08   Male / 50 years old level / Others / Very /
Purpose of use
Determine safe times for sun exposure using the rule of thumb that 45 degrees of elevation and above as unsafe.
Comment/Request
Even though I used the map search to find my location, the time zone was incorrectly shown as 9 hours (when it should have been 0 hours for GMT.)
