lczexplore: an R package to explore Local Climate Zone classifications

Résumé

Climate change is a growing concern for city planners as Urban Heat Islands have an impact on mortality (Clarke, 1972), health in general (Lowe, 2016) and consumption of energy for building cooling (Malys et al., 2012) among other effects. A first step towards large scale study of urban climate is to define classes based on logical division of the landscape, such as Local Climate Zones (LCZ) defined by Stewart & Oke (2012). A spatial comparison is performed by producing agreement maps between classifications, agreement statistics and a confusion matrix to help qualify and quantify the misclassifications. The lczexplore package aims at comparing different LCZ classifications, but can be used to compare any pair of classifications on geographical units. This software is available as a free and open source R package.
