Finding the Best Urban Environment for You!

Pitch

Climate Change adaptation is acknowledged as one of the main challenges faced by mankind. As cities are becoming the dominant human setting, many local authorities are trying to deal with this issue by developing thorough adaptation plans. However, most cities still lack implemented plans, and even when they exist, they tend to be an administrative tools scarcely used by the common citizen.
Thus, this is the perfect opportunity to implement an integrated web-SIG platform for home searching, that shows the most relevant urban climate change-related layers, such as pollutant exposure, sea level rise or the urban heat island effect, as translated from the plethora of satellite remote sensing data available. Such a tool allows the urban dweller to actively participate in urban adaptation, as he compares the urban exposure between neighborhoods and chooses the best environment to live in.
