Chapter Modeling Košice Green Roofs Map refers to the humidity input data that are used to create second graphical outcome of this work, first Košice Humidity Map another graphical outcome of this research, Košice Green Roofs Map. The chapter uses as an example 6 typical types of green roofs that may be used on a building following the map of humidity. In this chapter, analytical hierarchy process of choosing a green roof by the user and his preferences is shown on few examples. The chapter also lets the reader see the possibility to continue research to verify data missing in this book.
