Cellular Automata and Fractal Urban Form: A Cellular Modelling Approach to the Evolution of Urban Land-Use Patterns
Cellular automata belong to a family of discrete, connectionist techniques being used to investigate fundamental principles of dynamics, evolution, and self-organization. Expand

High-resolution integrated modelling of the spatial dynamics of urban and regional systems
Abstract An emerging branch of geocomputing involves the modelling of spatial processes. A variety of techniques are being used, the most important being traditional regionalized system dynamicsExpand

Cellular Automata as the Basis of Integrated Dynamic Regional Modelling
We present an integrated model of regional spatial dynamics consisting of a cellular automaton-based model of land use linked both to a geographic information system (GIS) and to standard nonspatial models of regional economics and demographics, as well as to a simple model of environmental change.

Integrated modelling and decision-support tools: a Mediterranean example
We describe how EU funded research models and understanding have been integrated into an interactive decision-support system addressing physical, economic and social aspects of land degradation in the Mediterranean. Expand

A System-based Paradigm of Drought Analysis for Operational Management
Conventionally droughts are studied in terms of their dimensions (severity, duration and areal extent), without specifying the affected system. The paper presents an innovative system-based approachExpand
