Whilst this extreme heat isn't the most comfortable weather, we are making the most of it here in The City of PAE.
If you see a light aircraft doing low level flights back and forth today, don't worry! We are working with Flinders University, City of West Torrens and City Of Charles Sturt to collect detailed heat mapping data for the AdaptWest project.
The data will help us to investigate the impact of neighbourhood urban form on its microclimate in order to enable more effective planning for community health and wellbeing across the Western Adelaide Region.
The data will help us to identify key factors which influence temperatures across the city at the local scale, such as urban design, areas of green space or water, and spatial geometry.
The flight path consists of 32 parallel flight lines, spaced 600m apart which will cover all of the City of PAE.
