This course focused on spatio-temporal aerial mapping of urban environments, with emphasis on field application of sensors and visualization technologies. This course aimed to introduce the participants to the theoretical and technical framework of urban environmental mapping, to understand the influence of urban parameters such as, building morphology, vegetation, or topographical variations in urban micro-climates. We utilized the campus of the Tongji University as the case study of our investigations, and operated drones and bicycles equipped with sensors and cameras to document the environment. This video demonstrates the students’ workflows and analysis.
