CLAIMS:

1. Method of controlling an outdoor lighting system, the outdoor lighting system comprising outdoor lamps which are distributed over spatial segments of an outdoor space, the emitted light intensity of the outdoor lamps being controllable for each spatial segment, the method comprising the steps of:

receiving business information for the spatial segments in the outdoor space including user input, wherein the business information includes at least a location, nature of the businesses hours of operation, and special events;

generating a database of businesses in the spatial segments; determining lighting requirements for at least some of the businesses using at least a portion of the business information; developing a lighting schedule for the spatial segments in the outdoor space in response to said lighting requirements and a modified light schedule based on a special event in a respective spatial segment;

controlling the one or more outdoor lamps in a spatial segment in accordance with the developed light schedule or modified light schedule.

2. The method of claim 1 wherein the lighting schedule comprises light intensity levels and time of day operating hours.

3. The method of claim 1 further comprising developing clusters of spatial segments having similar spatial characteristics and lighting schedule requirements.

4. The method of claim 3 wherein said developing a lighting schedule step comprises assigning a lighting schedule to outdoor lamps based at least in part upon their presence in one or more clusters.

5. The method of claim 4 wherein when an outdoor lamp is determined to be in only one cluster, assigning to it the lighting schedule for that cluster.

6. The method of claim 4 wherein when an outdoor lamp is determined to be in a plurality of clusters, assigning to it the lighting schedule for one of the clusters based at least partly upon a conflict resolution algorithm.

7. The method of claim 6 wherein the conflict resolution algorithm comprises assigning a higher priority in the selection process to a cluster whose lighting schedule relates to safety concerns.

8. The method of claim 4 further comprising the step of processing a user request for modification of one or more of the assigned light schedules.

9. The method of claim 8 wherein said user request comprises submission of an annotated map of the area to be affected by the modified lighting schedule.

10. A system for controlling an outdoor lighting system, the outdoor lighting system comprising outdoor lamps which are distributed over spatial segments of an outdoor space, the emitted light intensity of the outdoor lamps being controllable for each spatial segment, the system comprising:

a processor configured to receive business information for the spatial segments in the outdoor space including user input, wherein the business information includes at least a location, nature of the businesses hours of operation, and special events

a memory to store a database of businesses in the spatial segments; and wherein the processor is further configured to determine lighting requirements for at least some of the businesses using at least a portion of the business information, develop a lighting schedule for the spatial segments in the outdoor space in response to said lighting requirements and a modified light schedule based on a special event in a respective spatial segment; and,

- controlling the one or more outdoor lamps in a spatial segment accordance with the developed schedule or modified light schedule.

11. The system of claim 10 wherein the database of businesses comprises the locations and natures of the businesses and their hours of operation.

12. The system of claim 11 wherein the processor is further configured for:

developing clusters of spatial segments having similar spatial characteristics and lighting schedule requirements; and,

assigning a lighting schedule to outdoor lamps based at least in part upon their presence in one or more clusters.

13. The system of claim 12 wherein when an outdoor lamp is determined to be in a plurality of clusters, assigning to it the lighting schedule for one of the clusters based at least partly upon a conflict resolution algorithm.

14. The system of claim 12 wherein the processor is further configured for processing a user request for modifying one or more of the assigned light schedules.
