Hobsons Bay

City Council

With rising temperatures in Australia and 40 degree days, what percentage of vegetation cover is your suburb?


Here we map the vegetation cover across Hobsons Bay City Council over a year, showing changes over seasons, weather, watering regimes & land use changes. 

Monitoring and increasing vegetation cover can reduce the urban heat island, pressure on energy supply on hot days and protect vulnerable communities.

The power of observing Earth from space for city planning purposes gives us quantitative data sets in near real-tme.
