Hello all.
I am trying to use UCM. for this purpose, I understood that I need to have land use data in 33 categories. can anyone please guide me to prepare the LU data?
Is there any procedure for running UCM using the default USGS LU data?
what are the steps to proceed with UCM?
Please take look at the document here to see whether ti is helpful for you

Go down to the pg17-18, there is a detailed description how to implement high-resolution urban lands data.
