Mapping Data Acquired

 

DC_update2

The DC team has received new data, and is well on their way to creating the maps needed for their analysis. Updated LIDAR data will provide Juan Declet-Barreto with the land use/land cover information he will need to create maps of predicted areas of extreme heat. Olga Wilhelmi has provided heat-related search terms to the city so that they can extract heat-related data from 911 and 311 calls. This information – like what time of day the calls are being placed, and in what neighborhoods – can then be mapped and compared to the land cover map. This integrated map will give the team a clearer picture of whether land cover is a good predictor of extreme heat vulnerability, and where vulnerable populations are located.
