A tool for predicting Urban Heat Island Effect, with a focus on the Greater Toronto Area


Author: Mathieu Tuli

The backend follows a combination of a data and object oriented programming and provides the following features:

  • data downloader for Landsat images. See the data section for how to use this functionality
  • interface into the prediction model (training and testing interface)
  • general file and data manipulators (converting metres into latitude/longitude coordinates, image concatenation, image resizing, etc.)

For mac-users, note that you will not be able to install the python sentinelhub package unless you have geos installed. To install geos, use brew... brew install geos

To use SentinelHub, perform the following

  1. Sign into the dashboard
  2. On the left-hand-side sidebar, access the configuration utility tab
  3. Add two new layers... - First layer is named LST, and all that needs to be done is to select Landsat 8-L1C as the source and copy-and-paste the core/src/uhinet/backend/data/sentinel-hub-layers/lst.js code into the code-editor. - Second layer is named RGB, and all that needs to be done is to select Landsat 8-L1C as the source and copy-and-paste the core/src/uhinet/backend/data/sentinel-hub-layers/rgb.js code into the code-editor or select, from the left-hand-side menu in the editor, Base Product then TRUE_COLOR and then the first RGB visualization option.
