The project will use a sample of tree failure during super typhoon Mangkut to quantify and visualize the tree failing risk in Hong Kong built-up areas. The project will answer the possible effect from urban micro-environment design that contributes to the tree failure during extreme events. The project will project insight into the best management of urban trees to maximize environmental benefits and reduce the damage during extreme weather.
The student will learn ArcGIS to quantify and visualize the tree failing risk. The student will also learn ArcGIS to measure urban micro-environment design. The project calls for creativity to understand how we should best manage urban trees.
