The main idea is to spatialize urban temperature predictions. It is well known that local temperatures are closely related to surrounding land cover. To this end, we provide time series of local temperatures issued from sensors located in various areas as well as spatial data to assess land cover. The goal is to provide hourly maps of local temperatures during one day.


  • 1 Hyperspectral image (160 bands) and 1 bispectral LiDAR (NIR and green channels) in a urban district of Rennes (France).
  • 8 time series of 5 days (From July, 28th, 2015 to August, 1st, 2015, temporal resolution: 20 minutes) of temperatures issued from meteorological stations inside the observed area (location: the 8 red points).
  • See the download page for technical details.


  • Provide spatio-temporal series of temperature evolution (temporal resolution: 1 hour, spatial resolution: same that the given hyperspectral image) over July, 30th, 2015.
  • See upload page here.


  • RMSE using 7 meteorological stations (yellow points).
