The main objective of the CAMPAS-CH project was the analysis of the climate in the region of Canton Solothurn (Switzerland) and the delivery of aggregated climate information and planning recommendations according to the requirements of planning authorities
The climate analysis map and the map with planning guidelines were based on an analysis of climatic conditions in the Swiss Canton Solothurn resulting from the complex interdependencies between the natural environment and land use.
The maps and digital data layers were meant to supply planning authorities with specific climate information according to their needs. Spatially distributed data would enable planners to consider interactions between ventilation conditions, air quality and thermal stress with respect to both existing and projected land-use changes.
Basic information layers included land use and ventilation situations.
Data sets consisted of satellite data (Landsat-5 TM, ERS-2 SAR), digital terrain models and measurement data (meteorological and air quality data).
