Modelling in GIS: a cellular automation to modelling the growth behaviour of urban and rural development

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article reports on the implementation and application of a prototypical cellular automation based residential site selection model using a study site comprised of 40 sq. miles of urban hinderland in Indiana. In the simulated model, development pressures are hypothetically increased causing medium housing density to change to high density, forcing a responsive change in infrastructure cost, road development and rezoning of existing areas, all as time ticks away. It is clear from the implementation of this fascinating approach to modelling nature that the technique clearly represents a significant stride toward ecological planning and design proceses that are adaptive, evolutionary and responsive to change. -from Author
