Statistics on the built infrastructure at the Vancouver EPiCC experimental sites van der Laan, Michael Tije; Tooke, Thoreau Rory; Christen, Andreas; Coops, Nicholas C.; Heyman, Eli; Olchovski, Inna


This report documents statistics and descriptions of the built infrastructure and population in two study neighbourhoods that were part of the EPiCC network, namely the residential neighbourhoods of "Vancouver-Oakridge" and "Vancouver-Sunset". The report quantifies the built cover (plan area ratios) and 3D-structure (height, sky view factor) of the urban surface in the neighbourhoods as required for mesoscale urban parameterizations and ecosystem modeling. It also details a building typology approach and describes building characteristics (building and roof materials, heights, footprint, floor area, etc.) and the population density and distribution.
