This paper discusses a simulation and analysis of urban spatial expansion of Lanzhou City using remote sensing data,GIS and SLEUTH model.The historical data were derived from 1∶50 000 land use maps in 1949 and 1976,aerial photos in 1959,1980 and 2001,and Landsat TM images in 1986,1993 and 2005.Two different scenarios were designed for the calibration and prediction to explore the impacts of policy and social and economic factors on urban expansion.The first scenario was designed as the… CONTINUE READING
