Paper: Enhancing Urban Resilience and Climate Adaptation through Advanced Land Use Mapping

By Julius Knopp, Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research GmbH – UFZ

Amid urban challenges from climate change, the need to enhance land-use and land-cover (LULC) understanding in diverse urban spaces is critical. High-resolution urban mapping proves invaluable for categorisation. Integrating semantic data into administrative frameworks, amid the global trend of data sharing, further enhances its significance. Our study introduces a method using multitemporal orthophotos and LiDAR-derived height data for urban mapping.
