Microclimate Sensor Locations

This dataset contains the location and location description for each microclimate sensor device installed throughout the city. Each microclimate sensor device will have several climate sensors embedded inside. Sensor devices are typically installed on a street pole and locations are selected based on relevant project criteria.

Since the beginning of the Microclimate Sensor Readings dataset in 2019, some sensor devices have been relocated. This may be for various reasons such as construction works or re-assignment to new climate projects. Any changes to sensor locations are important to consider when analysing and interpreting historical data.

The site_id column can be used to merge the data with related dataset (linked below). Site_id refers to the location of the unique sensor device which may have changed over time.
