Despite the great importance of cities, relatively little consistent information about their internal configuration (structure, cover and materials) is available. The World Urban Database and Access Portal Tools (WUDAPT) initiative aims at the acquisition, storage and dissemination of data on the form and function of cities indifferent levels. At the lowest level, the Local Climate Zone (LCZ) scheme provides a basic description of urban structure. This scheme is a climate-based typology of urban and natural landscapes that also provides relevant information on basic physical properties of the landscape, which can be used in modelling and observational studies. The LCZ scheme has large potential as a standard generic description of urban areas. In this paper the scheme and our standard mapping approach are presented, followed by recent improvements and research on object-based image analysis, transferability of trained LCZ classifiers, quality of crowd contributions, and the use of other data sources and methods.
