LCZ GENERATOR MAPS

Please find the LCZ maps generated by the LCZ Generator web application here.

GLOBAL LCZ MAP

The global map of Local Climate Zones is currently under review in Earth System Science Data. The cite-able preprint is available here:

Demuzere, M., Kittner, J., Martilli, A., Mills, G., Moede, C., Stewart, I. D., van Vliet, J., and Bechtel, B.: A global map of Local Climate Zones to support earth system modelling and urban scale environmental science, Earth Syst. Sci. Data Discuss. [preprint], https://doi.org/10.5194/essd-2022-92, in review, 2022

The datasets are also available, see here:
