This paper presents a method to optimise the calibration of parameters and land use transition rules of a cellular automata (CA) urban growth model using a self-adaptive genetic algorithm (SAGA). Optimal calibration is achieved through an algorithm that minimises the difference between the simulated and observed urban growth. The model was applied to(More)
Geographic information systems and remote sensing technology, combined with geo-information mapping and spatial autocorrelation modeling were here used to investigate the spatial dynamics of marshes of the Small Sanjiang Plain from 1955 to 2005. Results showed that the total marshland of the Small Sanjiang Plain decreased in area by 80.06 %. This loss(More)
