Create LCZ Classification – old version

We are currently developing a new LCZ classification tool, which will allow automated online processing for your city. The old manuals are still available, but unfortunately we cannot give support any longer. For sampling of LCZ training areas you can still use the old template.

These pages describe how to carry out the classification process to create the LCZ map of your city. We are assuming that you have already created training areas in Google Earth. If not, please start here.

This section is divided into 3 steps:

  • Step 1: Download the data and software
  • Step 2: Generate the LCZ classification in SAGA GIS
  • Step 3: Upload your files

If you have any questions about the training or classification process, please email us at
