Abstract:Municipalities are and will be confronted with many ecological challenges. Temperature monitoring through the use of Internet of Things sensor networks can provide precise information about the past, current and eventually future environmental situation. The unequal repartition of heat is particularly significant in cities’ center, causing an urban heat island effect which can cause infrastructural damages as well as aggravated risks for human’s health. The goal of this project is to develop a monitoring solution for a network of temperature sensors scattered throughout the city of Enschede. A complete solution including a web server and web page visualizations were developed to allow the municipality to monitor the intensity of the urban heat island effect in real time. The concept was developed according to the requirements of the different stakeholders using an explorative approach through several idea generation methods. The municipality was enthusiastic about the final prototype and believed that the visualizations could help analyzing and sharing the information gathered.
