This paper aims to evaluate the feasibility of utilizing land surface temperature (LST) data for heat stroke incident rate (HSIR) investigations in Tokyo. Results deem LSTs suitable for HSIR investigations on a 23-ward scale however limitations such as data gaps, a reduced temporal analysis range and ward scale assessment were identified.
In building stock modeling, several methodologies have been developed to quantitatively improve the robustness and complexity of building stock but, often have limitations to involve differentiated description of building stock. This paper presents a geo-spatial methodology to develop data-driven archetypes of commercial buildings to assess the overall composition and characterization of building stock.
