The objective of this paper is to present a methodology for the integration between a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) microclimate simulation and a Geographic Information System (GIS). The first workflow involves the attribution of spatial coordinates to the point data extracted from the CFD, the implementation of a SQLite database, and the connection to the database for visualizing and using information on environmental and comfort variables. The second workflow involves the georeferencing of the CFD raster output, the attribution of an ID to the point data, the creation of a point grid in a GIS environment, and the merging of these with the point data on the microclimate. For demonstration purposes, the methodology is tested on a real case study using ENVI-met and ArcGIS Pro.

Abstract

The objective of this paper is to present a methodology for the integration between a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) microclimate simulation and a Geographic Information System (GIS). The first workflow involves the attribution of spatial coordinates to the point data extracted from the CFD, the implementation of a SQLite database, and the connection to the database for visualizing and using information on environmental and comfort variables. The second workflow involves the georeferencing of the CFD raster output, the attribution of an ID to the point data, the creation of a point grid in a GIS environment, and the merging of these with the point data on the microclimate. For demonstration purposes, the methodology is tested on a real case study using ENVI-met and ArcGIS Pro.
