Abstract

The Moland urban and regional growth model is based on spatial dynamics systems called cellular automata (CA). The model takes as input five types of digital maps, for the geographical area of interest: (a) actual land use types; (b) accessibility of the area to the transport network; (c) inherent suitability of the area for different land uses; (d) zoning status (i.e. legal constraints) of the area for different land uses; (e) socio-economic characteristics (e.g. population, income, production, employment) of the area.
