Heat Mapping

Changes in land use, including less green cover and more hard surfaces, have led to the microclimate phenomenon known as the urban heat island effect. Built areas absorb, store and radiate heat which can further exacerbated by larger scale climate changes including changes in the number of extreme hot days and heatwave events.

With recent expansion, Edge now has incorporated the preeminent providers of Urban Heat Island assessments across Australia. We use the best practice techniques and data to work with councils in order to identify heat islands and the associated social vulnerability effects.
