|Title:||Modelling Urban Development with Geographical Information Systems and Cellular Automata|
|Keywords:||City planning Simulation methods|
|Description:||Urban development and the migration of much of the population from rural to urban areas are significant global phenomena. Increasingly, more small isolated population centres are changing into large metropolitan cities at the expense of prime agricul- tural land and the destruction of natural landscape and public open space. This has attracted a lot of attention to the study of urban development under the theme of global environmental change. Various urban models have been built for this purpose. Amongst these, models based on the principles of cellular automata are developing most rapidly.|
