Recently, a few studies on context information for outdoor environments have been focused to collect phenomena data like a temperature, a humidity, etc. The importance of the former is increasingly recognized with changing environments and increase of heat stress in cities. In this paper, the authors present an outdoor comfort index framework based on GIS (Geographic Information System) for supporting context information instead of phenomena data in environments. They also present method for supporting comfort index and context information based on GIS in outdoor environments.
