title Spatial Characteristics Analysis of Urban Form at the Macroscale Based on Landscape Pattern Indices

summary Spatial characteristics are significant for urban form studies. Because quantifying the urban form at the macroscale is difficult, most of the relevant studies neglect or simplify the diversity of urban built areas. Local climate zone (LCZ) classification systems can transform macro urban form into a theme map composed of different LCZ classes, and such LCZ maps represent an effective urban form mapping technique, especially for built areas. However, this method still fails to provide a quantitative representation of the spatial characteristics. In this paper, the LCZ map is treated as a matrix composed of different patches and landscape pattern indices are applied to quantify the urban form. Taking 8 Chinese cities as case studies, the results show that 4 landscape scale indices and 4 class scale indices can effectively quantify the spatial characteristics of the urban form, including the area, shape, aggregation, and diversity. The quantitative spatial characteristics can provide a reference for urban design and management.
