Duluth Urban Intensity - Urban Land Use Intensity Index

Parcel data obtained from the City of Duluth and St. Louis County were used to summarize various aspects of the land use/land coverdata. For each parcel, we calculated % impervious pavement, % impervious rooftops, and the maximum and standard deviation of building heights. These four variables were scaled 0-1 based on the minimum and maximum values across the full data set, and summed. The summed values were then rescaled 0-1 to create an index of Urban Land Use Intensity (ULUI).
