Summary

Heat load, a unitless value from 0 (low incident radiation) to around 1 (high incident radiation), is calculated using aspect, slope, and latitude (McCune and Dylan 2002). For the purposes of the exploration tool, the data are binned into 6 classes using Geometric Interval. Classes range from very low to very high and are designed to allow the classification of a polygon into its heat load types. McCune, B. and Keon, D., 2002, Equations for potential annual direct incident radiation and heat load: Journal of Vegetation Science, v. 13, no. 4, p. 603-606, https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1654-1103.2002.tb02087.x.
