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. The operation of the model is illustrated with an application to the island of St Lucia developed for the purpose of providing insights into the possible socioeconomic consequences for the island of…

Developing a web-based cellular automata model for urban growth simulation

TLDR
A methodology to implement a fuzzy constrained cellular automata model of urban growth within a web-based GIS environment, using the actual urban growth of Metropolitan Sydney, Australia from 1976 to 2006 as a case study is presented.

Cellular Automata for modelling land use change as driven by socio-economic, environmental and policy factors

In this paper we present a decision support framework developed to assist planners and policy makers to analyse a wide range of policies and their associated spatial patterns. The core of this

A Cellular Automata Model for Urban Land-Use Simulation

TLDR
The results of the comparison show that the proposed CA model outperforms the alternative model with only a distance function, confirming the importance of incorporating local attributes in modeling land-use changes.

Simulation of urban growth using a cellular automata-based model in a developing nation's region

TLDR
The results of analysis and simulations indicate that application of the SLEUTH model to simulation of urban growth is advisable and the accuracy of simulation is acceptable.

CELLULAR AUTOMATA MODELLING APPROACH FOR URBAN GROWTH

TLDR
This paper reviews 87 published cellular automata studies on urban growth simulations, urban land use change assessments, urban planning and related information from 18 countries, and examines the characteristics of each relaxation method.

A Geographic Information Systems and cellular automata-based model of informal settlement growth

There exists a vital need to increase our understanding of the fast-growing informal settlements (IS) within the burgeoning mega cities of the less developed countries. Previous attempts have used

The Use of Constrained Cellular Automata for High-Resolution Modelling of Urban Land-Use Dynamics

TLDR
The model is used to simulate the land-use pattern of Cincinnati, Ohio and sensitivity analysis shows that the predictions of the model are relatively accurate and reproducible, thus suggesting that cellular ast;automata-based models may be useful in a planning context.

From Cells to Cities

TLDR
A general class of CA models for urban simulation is proposed and illustrated, which can be used to simulate the growth dynamics of a suburban area of a mid-sized North American city, thus illustrating how this approach provides insights into the way micro processes lead to aggregate development patterns.

Spatial Dynamics, Cellular Automata, and Parallel Processing Computers

TLDR
An attempt to reexamine spatial dynamics in the light of new concepts and techniques shows that a distance function combined with a strong neighborhood effect could produce patterns similar to that expected under the conditions of the classical von Thünen model.

Cellular Worlds: A Framework for Modeling Micro—Macro Dynamics

TLDR
A generalization of the cell-space principle is presented, based on discrete model theory, and then applied to a hypothetical but fairly complex problem of individual decision and large-scale urban change.

Requirements for planning-relevant GIS: A spatial perspective

For a variety of practical, technical, and theoretical reasons, geographic information system (GIS) capabilities are not yet fully attuned to the information needs of planning. This paper focuses on
