Abstract: This thesis proposes Geographic Information System (GIS) based urban climatic mapping method for climatic related impact assessment on an estate level development in Singapore. The framework is integrated with air temperature prediction models as a tool to evaluate the air temperature condition.Based on the literature review, the variables that determine air temperature can be divided into two categories, the climate predictors and urban morphology predictors. The climate predictors are the local climate condition measured at the reference weather station, such as the solar radiation, air temperature and wind speed. Meanwhile, the urban morphology predictors are the surrounding urban fabric conditions.The models, when used in GIS platform, become very useful for the planners to study the air temperature conditions across the estate either to improve the estateb s existing condition or to study the air temperature impact on the future master plan. The generated temperature maps will help the planners to point out the hot spots, enabling planners to modify the estatesb morphology distributions.
