The future sustainability of cities is linked directly with their adaptive capacity in response to both ongoing urbanization, weather extremes and climate change. Many possible actions are related to urban materials and their thermal and radiative properties. To explore alternatives using modelling and to monitor applications the thermal and radiative properties of materials are critical. However, there is a lack of hyperspectral data for a wide range of common materials. A Spectral Evolution RS-3500 spectroradiometer is used to measure 2151 spectral (1 nm) bands between 350 to 2500 nm in four representative neighborhoods of Berlin (Charlottenburg, Neukolln, Lichtenberg and Mitte) during August 2022. The data are processed to contribute 284 hyperspectral measurements of surfaces into the urbisphere hyperspectral library.
