Identification of heat islands to support city planning 2021-04-21T18:00:45+00:00

Product Description

This is a slideset for city planners about Urban Heat Islands and the importance of their identification in a spatial planning context. The slideset introduces the EO surface temperature maps, with their potential and their limitations.

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the importance of identifying UHIs in a spatial planning context.

  • Understand how EO surface temperature time series can support identification of UHIs.

  • Understand how to interpret EO surface temperature time series to identify UHIs.

  • Understand how to derive maps from EO surface temperature data, to be integrated with other relevant information related to UHI identification in a spatial planning context.

  • Understand how to analyse information derived from EO surface temperature data integrated with other relevant information related to UHI identification in a spatial planning context.

  • Understand the limitations of the EO surface temperature data due to the spatial resolution.
