Land use land cover changes (LULCC) are generally modeled using multi-scale spatio-temporal variables. Recently, Markov Chain (MC) has been used to model LULCC. However, the model is derived from the proportion of LULCC observed over a given period and it does not account for temporal factors such as macro-economic, socio-economic, etc. In this paper, we present a richer model based on Hidden Markov Model (HMM), grounded in the common knowledge that economic, social and LULCC processes are… Expand


Simulation and analysis of urban growth scenarios for the Greater Shanghai Area, China
The approach, which combines scenario-based urban simulation modeling and landscape metrics, is shown to be effective in representing, understanding, and predicting the spatial-temporal dynamics and patterns of urban evolution, including urban expansion trends. Expand
Monitoring and modeling the urban growth of two mid-sized Chilean cities
Abstract Chile's economic development model changed drastically in 1973. Public policy liberalization ended and the market became the principal entity for regulating growth, including urban growth.Expand
Simulation of land use spatial pattern of towns and villages based on CA-Markov model
The result shows that the land resource demands of urban development and population growth lead to the spatial pattern changes of land use in towns and villages and a method for the simulation of spatial patterns is proposed. Expand
A spatiotemporal model of land use change based on ant colony optimization, Markov chain and cellular automata
A spatiotemporal model of land use change based on ant colony optimization, Markov chain and cellular automata and compared with the other two models, the model is more appropriate in predicting both the quantity and spatial distribution of landUse change in the study area. Expand
Predicting land-use change
Land use change modelling, especially if done in a spatially-explicit, integrated and multi-scale manner, is an important technique for the projection of alternative pathways into the future, forExpand
A cellular automata model of land cover change to integrate urban growth with open space conservation
Abstract The preservation of riparian zones and other environmentally sensitive areas has long been recognized as one of the most cost-effective methods of managing stormwater and providing a broadExpand
Derivation of a yearly transition probability matrix for land-use dynamics and its applications
Transition matrices have often been used in landscape ecology and GIS studies of land-use to quantitatively estimate the rate of change. When transition matrices for different observation periods areExpand
Loose-Coupling a Cellular Automaton Model and GIS: Long-Term Urban Growth Prediction for San Francisco and Washington/Baltimore
A cellular automaton model, that was calibrated by using historical digital maps of urban areas and can be used to predict the future extent of an urban area, is applied to two rapidly growing, but remarkably different urban areas. Expand
Assessment of anticipated runoff because of impervious surface increase in Pune Urban Catchments, India: a remote sensing approach
Unbalanced economic growth of cities in developing countries in recent past has affected urban environment adversely. Rapid urbanization has led to increase in the impervious surface within urbanExpand
