In the practical exercise on Fri afternoon we want to create a LCZ map for Napoli. This will be done in two stage – first defining training samples using Google Earth, second conducting the classification (machine learning) in SAGA GIS. Therefore you need software, knowledge, and data.

As software please download/install SAGA GIS and Google Earth. SAGA can be downloaded for Linux and Windows (portable). For Mac it has to be compiled [manual]

For preparation you have a look at the LCZ manuals for creating training areas and LCZ classification. We will quickly go through these in the hands on session.
