Abstract

The use of sensor based real-time data offers valuable insights into the management of temperature conditions in outdoor environments. Where city temperatures have been traditionally measured at static locations, emerging sensing and data logging technology now allows for localised data collection that can provide information on site specific temperature behaviours. Viewed in this way, real-time temperature information has the potential to allow design decision making to be responsive to specific place conditions and adaptable to changing future situations.
