LandSpaCES Model (Evaluation Module)

  • Demetris Demetriou
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


This chapter outlines the development of the land redistribution Evaluation module of LandSpaCES. This module aims to assess alternative land redistribution solutions generated by the Design module as described in the previous chapter and determines the best solution to be input to the next module of LACONISS, i.e. the land partitioning (LandParcelS) module.
