Mapping Data Acquired



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.
