  1. Values between brackets are the Standard Deviations
  2. aThe entropy score ranges from 0 to 100 and is normalised using natural logarithm of the number of land uses (i.e. 1 Industrial, commercial, public, military and private units, 2 Residential areas, 3 Green urban areas, and 4 Sports and leisure facilities)
