    About This Project

    Many cities have proposed greening initiatives to offset local global warming, but these are difficult to measure and monitor. Cities are big compared to a thermometer, but small compared to satellite images–affordably measuring temperature is problem that is not well addressed with current technology. We propose to develop WeatherCubes, a set of affordable heat sensors, which we will use to measure the effectiveness of greening initiatives in Baltimore.
