Urban Indicators Using Spectrals Indices

Urban Sustainability has become a global pursuit with government agencies in the United States offering programs, technical assistance, and funding opportunities for strategic growth within cities. Climate change, growing populations, the decrease of essential resources, and the availability of funding to deal with these emerging conditions, provide the incentives for cities to mitigate and adapt through urban sustainability programs.

This article presents a methodology that combines the use of urban indicators and spectral indices as a valid diagnostic and prescriptive tool to generate relevant information regarding some of the important urban indicators.
