This work intends to give an overview of the topic of urban heat islands with a focus in facts important to architects and urban planners. Furthermore, a study of a local heat island in Vienna, Austria was conducted using mobile traverses to collect data. A general explanation of heat islands is given and methods and tools to measure and model them are explained. The focus then lies on mitigation measures that can be implemented by planners. Results of the study are presented, and the correlation between urban heat islands and the local environment is discussed.
