Database with the survey results of comfort conditions, use of outdoor space and social character of 7 European cities, 14 different open spaces

The raw data, obtained from the case study surveys and interviews has been made widely available over the Internet. The database includes microclimatic data and corresponding results of the questionnaires regarding the thermal, visual and acoustic environment, as well as information on the use of outdoor space and social character, from 14 different open areas from 7 European cities (Alimos in wider Athens, Thessalonica, Milan, Fribourg, Kassel, Cambridge and Sheffield). Each site has been monitored throughout the day for a whole week per season, in all four seasons, in order to obtain the dynamic temporal variation required. This data set, with over 10,000 interview records, will be useful for future reference of similar projects, so that eventually a whole database can be constructed with comfort studies from around the world, to provide immense support and backup for future studies.
