The association has created and maintains up to date a database of technical data sheets of more than 7000 sundials permanently installed in public spaces throughout Catalonia and Andorra. It is being used as a reference in the lists of sundials of the Catalan wikipedia for example in the sundial located in the monastery of Santes Creus.[14] [15]

Sundial at the South Pole

With the patronage of the Societat Catalana de Gnomónica there is a sundial installed at the Amundsen-Scott Station . [16]

Similar associations

Throughout time there have been all kinds of entities that have promoted the construction of sundials and the conservation of existing ones. Apparently, however, the existence of specialized amateur societies exclusively in the gnomonic is very scarce.

  • An official French entity is the Commission des Cadrans solaires, attached to the¬†Soci√©t√© astronomique de France.[17] [18]‚Äč
  • 1988.¬†Asociaci√≥n Amigos Relojes de Sol (AARS), based in Madrid.[19]
    • Analema magazine publication (1991-2005)
  • 1994.¬†Commission des Cadrans solaires du Qu√©bec, based in Quebec.[20]
    • Publication¬†Le Gnomiste .
  • The ARCA Patrimonio (Asociaci√≥n para la Revitalizaci√≥n de los Centros Antiguos de Mallorca) has a Sundial Commission.[21]
