Land Use Modelling is the process of modelling the transformation of Land Use and Land Cover in time.

Related concepts: Land Use Change Dynamics, Dynamic Land use/cover simulation, Land Use and Transport Interaction (LUTI).

The GeoDMS was initially developed to support Land Use Modelling.


In land use modelling claims at regional/national level are usually allocated to grid cells. Different Allocation methods are in use.

Driving factors at the grid cell level influence possible transitions between different land use types. Accessibility is in many models an important driving factor.


The following two frameworks are in development and use to support land use modelling:
