Abstract

We conducted a walking tour with citizens to experience and measure the urban thermal environment. This investigation was performed to make Klima-atlas with citizen participation by experience surveys. This trial was also performed to examine urban thermal environment from a new perspective based on comfort level (experience values) as indices for evaluation of heat island measures. This project provides an opportunity to raise awareness and increase understanding of the heat island phenomenon and its causes among local citizens. The results were provided to local citizens to create a good feedback loop to improve local environmental conditions.
