Abstract

In recognition of the limited application of the satellite-based 'nadir' viewpoint for monitoring urban microclimate, a study was carried out to investigate the three-dimensional temperature relationships in high rise housing estates in Singapore. The data derived from this study are combined with LANDSAT TM thermal data to construct an automated 3-dimensional model of the high rise urban environment which can be varied according to sun angle and azimuth at the time of imaging and the viewing angle required by the user.
