Land Transformation ModelEntry ID: PURDUE_LTM
Abstract: The Land Transformation Model is a land use forecasting model as well as a tool that can be used to examine the spatial and temporal aspects of driving forces of land use change. The model uses a set of spatial interaction rules and machine learning, through neural net technology, to determine the nature of spatial interactions of drivers, such as transportation, urban infrastructure and proximity to lakes and rivers, that have historically contributed toward land use change in the past. This information is then used to conduct forecasting studies.
