The aim of the work was to apply the parameters of the similarity metric to the land use of European cities and to search for groups of similar cities. Metrics were included for one hundred selected cities, both for the city's core (core) and its functional area (FUA).
In the first part, data was downloaded from the Urban Atlas dataset, which had to be subsequently processed for further use in this work. Furthermore, parameter calculation methods were used, namely the method of summary tables, which took place in the ArcGIS Pro or MS Excel software, and then the method using spatial metrics, which were calculated in two ways, using the FRAGSTAS software and the Patch Analyst add-on plugin for ArcMap.
The calculated parameters served as input to cluster analyses, thanks to which groups of similar cities were identified. The result of the work is a visual comparison of groups of similar cities according to land use.
