This paper presents the spatial differentiation to biothermal conditions in the Ziemia Kłodzka region of Poland, the basis for the assessment being the Universal Thermal Climate Index (UTCI), with spatial analysis relating to maps made using a GIS application. The differentiation to UTCI values was defined for several types of weather. The greatest spatial differentiationto values for heat stress is to be observed in sunny, hot and dry weather in the presence of only gentle winds. Forests stand out from other types of landscape in the way they mitigate heat loads significantly
