AQ impacts of city planning



  • Support to decision makers for city planning (e.g. distance of the buildings from the streets, shapes and heights of the buildings as well as the other structure of the street canyon). With proper urban planning, the ventilation of street canyons and courtyards can be enhanced and a good local AQ enabled.
  • Determination of AQ hot-spots and proposal of mitigation measures in planned building
