The platform effectively transforms urban data into actionable intelligence, which is essential for crafting cities resilient to climatic changes. This aids in shaping sustainable, adaptable urban landscapes, ensuring a harmonious balance between development and environmental considerations. 

tOS includes specific modeling for urban physics, customized for each locality, neighborhood, city, or even county. This enhancement in detail and specificity greatly enhances the effectiveness of planning, making our urban areas more livable and better equipped to handle the challenges posed by urban heat and environmental sustainability.

Dashboard Use Cases - available April 2024

Chief Heat Officers will employ the dashboard to identify heat risk areas, evaluate heat resilience strategies, engage communities in mitigation efforts, analyze long-term urban heat trends, and communicate actionable insights to stakeholders, streamlining collaborative efforts for urban cooling.


Heat Vulnerability Mapping

Identify specific localities on the Temperature Classification Map for targeted heat action planning, focusing on vulnerable populations and hotspots.


Infrastructure Planning Analytics

Utilize temperature map analytics for precise planning and implementation of heat resilience infrastructure projects, with detailed filters for effective intervention analysis.


Community Heat Awareness Tools

Engage communities with Google Street View analytics to visually demonstrate the impacts of sun exposure, greenery, and urbanization on local temperatures.


Insights Dashboard

Use the Insights Dashboard for concise overviews and key findings, facilitating communication of actionable insights for urban cooling strategies to stakeholders.


Urban Heat Trend Analysis

Employ satellite analytics to compare historical and current imagery, assessing urban heat trends and the effectiveness of urban greening initiatives.


Risk Mitigation Strategy Development

Leverage the dashboard in identifying vulnerable communities and infrastructure, prioritizing them for heat resilience interventions and emergency preparedness planning, enabling the design and implementation of targeted risk mitigation strategies.

Enterprise API Use Cases

Available in the US only starting July 2024, these API uses empower Chief Heat Officers to lead and innovate in the development of comprehensive strategies to mitigate urban heat risks. By leveraging advanced temperature data and analytics, Chief Heat Officers can drive efforts to make cities safer, more livable, and resilient in the face of rising temperatures and climate change.


Chief Heat Officers can use the API to access temperature data and analytics, enabling the development of strategic heat action plans. This includes identifying vulnerable populations, mapping heat hotspots, and prioritizing areas for intervention to reduce heat risks and improve urban resilience.

Strategic Heat Action Planning


Heat Resilience Infrastructure Projects

The API facilitates the integration of temperature data into the planning and implementation of heat resilience infrastructure projects. This can include the development of cool roofs, green roofs, and urban greening initiatives, leveraging data to ensure these projects are effectively located to maximize cooling benefits and reduce urban heat island effects.


Monitoring and Evaluation of Heat Interventions

Chief Heat Officers can leverage the API for ongoing monitoring and evaluation of heat resilience interventions. This includes accessing temperature data to assess the effectiveness of cooling strategies, urban greening projects, and infrastructure modifications in reducing urban heat.


Community Engagement and Co-creation

The API supports Chief Heat Officers in engaging with communities to co-create heat resilience solutions. By providing data-driven insights, they can involve citizens in identifying heat challenges and developing localized interventions, ensuring community needs and perspectives are central to resilience planning.


Interagency Coordination and Collaboration

The API enables Chief Heat Officers to share critical temperature data and insights with other city departments and agencies, fostering interagency collaboration on heat resilience. This ensures a coordinated approach to urban planning, emergency response, and public health efforts to address heat risks.
