NSW Urban Heat Island to Modified Mesh Block 2016

The Urban Heat Island (UHI) dataset measures the effects of urbanisation on land surface temperatures across Sydney Greater Metropolitan Area for the Summer of 2015-2016.
UHI shows the variation of temperature to a non-urban vegetated reference, such as heavily wooded areas or national parks around Sydney.
Derived from the analysis of thermal and infrared data from Landsat satellite, the dataset has been combined with the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Mesh Block polygon dataset to provide a mean UHI temperature that enables multi-scale spatial analysis of the relationship of heat to green cover.
