DATA COLLECTED BY COUPLING FIX AND WEARABLE SENSORS FOR ADDRESSING URBAN MICROCLIMATE VARIABILITY IN AN HISTORICAL ITALIAN CITY
Here are provided two different datasets: 1. a long-term monitoring of air temperature and relative humidity collected through stand-alone probes (Tinytag TGP-4500) located in two specific areas of the town; 2. a short-term, movable transects monitoring conducted on foot by means of a wearable miniaturized weather station specifically developed by the authors and designed in order to be settled upon a common bike helmet. The data are provided in two supplementary files. The microclimatic variable data are organized in an excel file composed by four datasheets. The datasheets called “Moving_transectX” are referred to the three short dynamic monitoring campaigns and each datasheet presents collected raw environmental parameters, i.e. VOC and CO2 concentration, air temperature, relative humidity, wind direction, wind speed, and global solar radiation, and the apparent temperature which is a direct thermal comfort index calculated.
