Latitudo 40 Urban Simulator
Latitudo 40 Place Simulator is a tool capable of simulating and evaluating future urban scenarios using exclusively satellite images. It allows you to objectively compare design and strategic alternatives in order to evaluate the best one. It therefore allows you to test urban solutions in a virtual way, thus avoiding very expensive and time-consuming modifications and field tests, measuring the environmental benefits and the impact on the area under consideration. Latitudo 40 Place Simulator significantly supports urban planning and the sustainable management of cities and territories.
To verify the effectiveness of the adaptation measures, the MPI was then applied to the case study of via Neera (MI), building a series of possible design scenarios which could also represent a possible evolution of the area over time, through actions of de-paving, removal of parking lots and insertion of trees.
The figure shows the application of MPI to different project scenarios, evaluating the microclimatic average.
