Urban Heat Vulnerability Map - A map that highlights the vulnerability of urban areas to extreme heat to help cities find the optimal location for heat mitigation strategies.

The Urban Heat Vulnerability Maps that we develop for city municipalities are able to identify not only where are the hottest areas are located but also where the most vulnerable people of the city are located in the city. In addition, there are also able to visualise the current state of adaptive capacity to extreme heat based on the availability of greenery, water bodies public health etc. Therefore, they can identify where to develop heat mitigation projects. By helping the city prioritise its actions, the map maximises the efficiency of the city's efforts to become more resilient.

The Urban Heat Vulnerability Map is processing 3 times more data sets and is delivered 4 times quicker than the traditional approach, empowering cities to identify the most vulnerable areas to extreme heat events and therefore maximise the impact of the implementation of heat mitigation strategies.

Key features

  • Our map empowers decision-makers to develop heat mitigation strategies: - The shade provided by trees can reduce our physiologically equivalent temperature by between 7 and 15°C.
  • Green infrastructures can reduce energy consumption by 8% for heating energy and up to 18% for cooling energy.

Profitability

  • Besides having a direct impact on energy consumption, the solution will prevent tremendous costs incurred by society occurring during heat waves
