Modeling the Spatial Dynamics of Regional Land Use: The CLUE-S Model
A dynamic, spatially explicit, land-use change model is presented for the regional scale: CLUE-S that explicitly addresses the hierarchical organization of land use systems, spatial connectivity between locations and stability.
Land use change modelling: current practice and research priorities
Current models are reviewed to identify priority issues for future land use change modelling research and six concepts important to land use modelling are discussed, based on level of analysis, cross-scale dynamics, driving forces, spatial interaction and neighbourhood effects, temporal dynamics, and level of integration.
Comparing the input, output, and validation maps for several models of land change
Methods of multiple resolution map comparison are applied to quantify characteristics for 13 applications of 9 different popular peer-reviewed land change models using scientifically rigorous, generally applicable, and intellectually accessible statistical techniques.
Combining top-down and bottom-up dynamics in land use modeling: exploring the future of abandoned farmlands in Europe with the Dyna-CLUE model
Land use change is the result of interactions between processes operating at different scales. Simulation models at regional to global scales are often incapable of including locally determined
Framing Sustainability in a Telecoupled World
Interactions between distant places are increasingly widespread and influential, often leading to unexpected outcomes with profound implications for sustainability. Numerous sustainability studies
Determinants of Land-Use Change Patterns in the Netherlands
Land-use-change patterns are the result of the complex interaction between the human and the physical environment. Case studies of the determinants of land-use change can help to analyse which theory
