City of College Station's Thermographic Mobile Scan
MetadataShow full item record
During the first quarter of 1986, the City of College Station conducted a thermographic mobile scan of the entire city. A thermographic mobile scan is a process by which heat loss/heat gain data is accumulated by a vehicle traveling the city with thermographic equipment mounted on it. College Station residents were given the opportunity to view a thermogram of their home which showed where heat is escaping in the winter and gained in the summer. A computer run of this data was provided to the citizen with recommendations and exact paybacks on various energy conservation improvements.
