Land-Use Modelling in Planning Practice

Editors:

(view affiliations)
  • First ever account of how a land-use modelling tool is being fashioned to examine a wide array of different planning issues ranging from climate change to ways of reducing energy use in transport.

  • Provides a unique insight in the vast Dutch land-use modelling experience.

  • Bridges the science of land-use modelling with the practice of policy making.

  • Offers a wide collection of inspiring examples of land-use model applications.

  • Discusses potential ways of improving existing models of land-use change

About this book

This book provides an overview of recent developments and applications of the Land Use Scanner model, which has been used in spatial planning for well over a decade. Internationally recognized as among the best of its kind, this versatile model can be applied at a national level for trend extrapolation, scenario studies and optimization, yet can also be employed in a smaller-scale regional context, as demonstrated by the assortment of regional case studies included in the book. Alongside these practical examples from the Netherlands, readers will find discussion of more theoretical aspects of land-use models as well as an assessment of various studies that aim to develop the Land-Use Scanner model further.

 

Spanning the divide between the abstractions of land-use modelling and the imperatives of policy making, this is a cutting-edge account of the way in which the Land-Use Scanner approach is able to interrogate a spectrum of issues that range from climate change to transportation efficiency. Aimed at planners, researchers and policy makers who need to stay abreast of the latest advances in land-use modelling techniques in the context of planning practice, the book guides the reader through the applications supported by current instrumentation. It affords the opportunity for a wide readership to benefit from the extensive and acknowledged expertise of Dutch planners, who have originated a host of much-used models.
