Atmospheric factors have a great influence on the shaping of the environment in which people live. Atmospheric factors not only affect the environment, but also affect the bioclimatic comfort conditions of people during their daily activities. Human bioclimatology is affected by atmospheric factors such as temperature, relative humidity, wind and precipitation. For this reason, many indices have been created to determine people's bioclimatic comfort perceptions. Some of these indexes only consider atmospheric conditions. In recent years, in addition to atmospheric conditions, the personal characteristics of people have been included in the indexes by researchers. In this study, the heat index, which enables the determination of bioclimatic comfort areas by taking advantage of temperature and relative humidity conditions, was used. The sensed temperature values ??obtained were applied to the Physiological Equivalent Temperature classification and the bioclimatic comfort areas of Antalya province were determined.When the temperature values ??were examined, it was seen that the temperature values ??on the Mediterranean coast reached up to 30 °C in summer. On the other hand, it drops below 0 °C in the high parts in winter. When the relative humidity values ??are examined, it has been determined that the relative humidity rates reach up to 89% in the winter season. Considering the bioclimatic comfort perception levels of the research area, the "Comfortable" thermal perception level was determined in May, June, July, August, September and October. Apart from this, there is no”Hot” and "Very Hot" thermal perception level in PET classification. In addition, it has been determined that there are differences in the distribution of bioclimatic comfort areas depending on the topography and altitude characteristics.
