This paper aims to generate the Urban Climatic Analysis Map (UC-AnMap) of Kuala Lumpur City. It uses the Geographical Information System as the analysis platform together with available data sets of Kuala Lumpur to generate the urban climatic map.

Using the combination of the two key analyses, the UC-AnMap of Kuala Lumpur is produced and climatically sensitive areas of the city produced.
