Local Climate Zones of Oslo published in the lcz-repository

4 June 2021

English:

The cartography of Local Climate Zones (LCZ) of Oslo has been published in the lcz-generator repository (https://lcz-generator.rub.de/), a new tool created by the Climatology group of Bochum University and the WUDAPT project. These maps divide the space into different categories that represent the surface structure (e.g., height and density of buildings and vegetation) and the permeability/impermeability of the soil. The cartography has been done by training areas prepared within the Master’s Project of Laurence Sigler, co-directed by Joan Gilabert and Gara Villalba, entitled “Generation of urban data to support climate research: developing Local Climate Zones for Oslo, Norway”. This new tool based on the application of a machine learning method with Google Earth Engine is published in the article: Demuzere, M., Kittner, J., Bechtel, B. (2021).  LCZ Generator: a web application to create Local Climate Zone maps. Frontiers in Environmental Science 9:637455. https://doi.org/10.3389/fenvs.2021.637455.

It currently has more than 150 LCZ cartographies that can be downloaded for free. On that website, you will find the LCZ map of Barcelona, generated by Joan Gilabert.

Català:

S’ha publicat la cartografia de Zones Climàtiques Locals (LCZ) d’Oslo en el repositori lcz-generator (https://lcz-generator.rub.de/), una nova eina creada pel grup de Climatologia de la Universitat de Bochum i el projecte WUDAPT. Aquests mapes  divideixen l’espai en diferents categories que representen l’estructura superficial (per exemple altura i densitat dels edificis i vegetació) i la permeabilitat del sòl. La cartografia s’ha realitzat amb l’ajuda de les zones d’entrenament elaborades dins el Treball de Màster del Laurence Sigler, co-dirigit pel Joan Gilabert i la Gara Villalba, titulat “Generation of urban data to support climate research: developing Local Climate Zones for Oslo, Norway”. Aquesta nova eina basada en l’aplicació d’un mètode de “machine learning” amb Google Earth Engine està publicada a l’article: Demuzere, M., Kittner, J., Bechtel, B. (2021). LCZ Generator: a web application to create Local Climate Zone maps. Frontiers in Environmental Science 9:637455. https://doi.org/10.3389/fenvs.2021.637455.

Disposa actualment de més de 150 cartografies LCZ que es poden descarregar gratuïtament, on també hi trobareu la de Barcelona que va ser generada pel Joan Gilabert.
