UCDL Microclimate Digital Platform


A web-based digital platform to visualize and model urban microclimate simulations to support urban planning in Singapore.

The web platform allows users to view visualization of microclimate simulations such as: Urban Heat Island Intensity, Urban Wind Permeability, Neighborhood Wind Permeability, Anthropogenic Heat Dispersion and Solar Exposure on the whole of Singapore as well as customized local areas.

The current version of the application is mainly for evaluation of existing urban area. For future installment, the platform would allow the user to import urban massing and perform microclimate simulations.

The platform is written mainly in JavaScript and TypeScript with Angular and node.js, utilizing itowns(three.js) and OpenLayers as basis for the 3D viewer. A Geoserver is also used to host required data such as buildings and roads.
