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 is appropriate in a particular region and stimulate the development of new theoretic understandings. In this paper an empirical method is presented to analyse the pattern of land-use change that allows a wide range of factors, from different disciplines, to contribute to the explanation of land-use…

The effect of driving forces in shaping land-use change tends to remain stable over time, but the deployment of new infrastructure and the gradual enforcement of spatial planning policies appear to be important factors in dynamically changing spatial patterns of land- use change.

A Study on the Land-Cover Change Indicators of Taipei Metropolitan Areas

The traditional research of land cover/land use change sets focus on the spatial unit of parcel or grid for analysis and simulation. Since the change of individual land use would be affected by the

This study identifies a combination of socio-economic drivers, policy-related factors, nature and location-based factors as key influences on agricultural land conversion processes in Europe.

The Synthesis and Spatial Dynamics of Socio-economic Metabolism and Land-use Change

Land-Use and Land-Cover Change (LUCC) project plays the role of triggers for researchers to explore complicated systems of land-use change and develop land-use change models in decades. After various

THE ROLE OF SELECTED BIOPHYSICAL FACTORS IN LONG- TERM LAND-USE CHANGE OF CULTURAL LANDSCAPE

The paper addresses the importance of biophysical factors in land-use change over a period of time of more than 150 years beginning in the middle of the nineteenth century. Biophysical factors define

Dynamic simulation of land-use change trajectories with the CLUE-s model

The CLUE(Conversion of Land Use and its Effects) model is one of the most widely applied models with approximately 30 applications in different regions of the globe focusing on a wide range of

Modelling the land use system process for a pre-industrial landscape in India

Land in India is changing in a rapid pace since the green revolution during 1960 and industrial policy reforms during 1990. Certainly land cover land use (LCLU) changes have huge impacts on countries

A multi-scale, multi-model approach for analyzing the future dynamics of European land use

Europe’s rural areas are expected to witness massive and rapid changes in land use due to changes in demography, global trade, technology and enlargement of the European Union. Changes in demand for

Modelling the spatial pattern of urban fringe

Urban fringe is the foreland in the process of “urban sprawl”, especially in developing countries e.g. China. The rapid land use changes in this transitional and semi-urban system often puzzled urban
