The research project ENLIGHT aims at developing a consistent and generic methodology that enables a globally consistent analysis of urban heat islands. In order to achieve this goal, both satellite earth observation and crowdsourced data is used. This way the global urban data gap can be closed, and the data can be integrated in climate management at the global, regional, and local scale. All final products will be freely available.

ENLIGHT started in April 2020 and is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG, No. 437467569) for a duration of three years.
