The model was built in a modular format. This enabled customisation of inputs, creating a unique localised thermal comfort index catering for different themes and constraints. This also allowed updating on a module rather than the whole model.
“Spatial Vision played an integral role in this project, including designing a theoretical model to map thermal comfort using CoM data. The ‘cool routes’ tool will enable city users to move around the city comfortably and also provide us with an opportunity to communicate the importance of looking after your health during heat events and demonstrate the benefits of greening to cool the city.”
