This module develops the participants’ conceptual understanding of advanced methods for modelling urban land use change & the ability to select, develop & apply methods in an appropriate manner.
The module commences with introductory lectures, readings and discussions on the field of urban modelling, setting the stage for a series of short workshops in which specific methods and techniques are studied in depth and applied to case studies.
The methods to be examined include image based change detection, system dynamics for urban land use change, spatial logistic regression for identifying drivers of urban land use change, Agent Based Models (Netlogo) and Cellular Automata models (Metronamica). This module provides a solid foundation for module 13 on networks and spatial interaction models.
Urban ®ional modelling foundations (stories, models & plans); Urban land use change detection (ERDAS); Urban land use change modelling; Key parameters for developing land use models and scenarios.
Explain the theoretic and modelling foundations of urban and regional land use change analysis; Describe the strengths and limitations of GIS in modelling land use change.
