To adapt the urban area to the future climate and react to the global warming phenomenon, this project analyzed the dependency of land use and land surface temperature (LST) in Eindhoven area through 2000 to 2010. The goal is to achieve the Dutch government’s target of COP22 and also reduce the two degrees increase mentioned in KNMI climate report. To help the local government plan the city in a more sustainable way, the land use data from DANS and LST data from USGS in the selected year 2000, 2006, 2006, and 2010 have been used. The dependency model investigate the land use and LST change in the same geolocation through the time. In the end, the best suggestion for future land use composition will be achieved.
