Slope, Land cover, Exclusion, Urbanization, Transportation, and Hillshade (SLEUTH)

Summary
Abstract: Slope, Land cover, Exclusion, Urbanization, Transportation, and Hillshade
(SLEUTH) was developed by Dr. Keith C. Clarke. Research continues at the
University of California, Santa Barbara, Department of Geography. This work
began through sponsorship from the United States Geological Survey's Urban
Dynamics program, and continues under the NSF funded Urban Research Initiative.
A related UCSB website focusing on the NSF work is located on the UC-IME
project page.

The Urban Growth Model (UGM) is a C program running under UNIX that uses the
standard gnu C compiler (gcc) and may be executed in parallel. It can be
formatted for any other standard C compiler. Some minor changes in the code
might be necessary for execution in new environments. In order to implement the
model a good understanding of C programming is expected.

The land cover deltatron model (LCD) is included within the code and will be
called and driven by the UGM. The LCD is tightly coupled with the urban code,
but the UGM can run independently of it. Together, these coupled models are
referred to as SLEUTH. The name SLEUTH was derived from the simple image input
requirements of the models: Slope, Land cover, Exclusion, Urbanization,
Transportation, and Hillshade.

Description: Gigalopolis is the growing urban structure containing billions of people
worldwide. Urban settlements and their connectivity will be the dominant driver
of global change during the twenty-first century. Intensely impacting land,
atmospheric, and hydrologic resources, urban dynamics has now surpassed the
regional scale of megaloplolis and must now be considered as a continental and
global scale phenomenon. Project Gigalopolis extends and refines the Clarke
urban growth model enabling predictions at regional, continental and eventually
global scales.
