A Study of Tree Pattern and Tree species of Colonial Grid Pattern City in Tropical Zone Considering Urban Morphology Using Statistical Analysis

Khaing Myint Mo and Mishima Nobuo
Abstract—Since the tropical zone is hotter and humid weather, maintaining the green area and microclimate strategies of surrounding urban areas can improve not only outdoor thermal comfort but also indoor as well. This paper discusses about the tree pattern and tree species of colonial grid pattern city in tropical zone which is aging, but still use as central business district, considering urban morphology with respect to shading since the shading has supreme influence on thermal comfort. The purpose of this research is to investigate the shading condition of existing city pattern. The investigation was carried out using Geographic information system(GIS), 3D modelling program, and statistical analysis. The result of this study will propose tree planning system of old Grid Pattern city to maintain old urban city not to vanish the historical facts and original image and to contribute it to other similar area.

Index Terms—Tree pattern, tree species, tropical zone, urban shading.
