The intense process of urbanization and the expansion of the urban area in the last few decades has led to contrasting settings in the urban area of Viçosa (MG), which undoubtedly reverberate differently in the thermal field. In order to understand the nature and behavior of climatic elements and their relationship with the factors of natural and human order in the city, nine data collection points were installed in its central area, equipped with HOBO data loggers of the model U10-003. In addition to these data, the sky view factor (SVF), and the geoecological aspects and anthropic landscape elements of the analyzed area, are observed. View Full-Text
