Climate Resilience


DPRA Heat Module
The Tygron Heat Stress Module is based on the Dutch national standards for stress testing. It gives insight in the perceived temperature (PET) as well as in how it can be influenced.

Surface Drought
Gain insight in the drought situation.

Urban Heat Stress
In this use case for St. Andries, a neighbourhoud in Antwerp (Belgium), the impact of urban plans on heat stress was assessed. The analysis was enriched with data measured by citizens. The aim was to determine and create ‘cool spots’ for vulnerable citizens in the neighbourhood.


Weather station temperature data
Adjust the temperature used for the heat stress calculation, using weather station data.

Inundation
Display the hazard and impact of (heavy) rainfall over a project area. Based on the elevation model, terrain roughness and representations…

Adjust rainfall
Determine the kinds of showers (length, impact, pattern) you want to assess by using the rainfall wizard.

Use available detailed 3D city model data
Use available I3S 3D city model data to build a new project on the Tygron Platform instead of our custom models.

Import Sketch-up models
Easily import a Sketch-up model into your project, e.g. from a database such as 3D warehouse, using ArcGIS Pro or FME.

Import 3D CAD models
Easily import a 3D CAD model into your project using ArcGIS Pro or FME.


Live connection with ArcGIS Online and Enterprise
Add and use your own Geo data hosted in ArcGIS Online or Enterprise.


AHN3 standard for Dutch projects
AHN3 has recently become available nationwide. That is why the AHN3 is now loaded by default for your projects in the Tygron Platform.

Student use case: Leiden University students for a greener Hoefkade

The Hoefkade neighbourhood in the Hague, like many urban areas in the times of climate change is facing the problem of overheating and flooding. On behalf of the Municipality of the Hague, students of Leiden University have used the Tygron Platform to investigate how the incorporation of greenery and climate adaptation measures could decrease the heat and flooding of the neighbourhood.
