Sample text

Rather, the intent here is to provide a very brief description of the basics of the model that will enable the reader to follow some of the reasoning behind its use-driven local applications. Fundamentally, the LEAM model consists of two major organizational parts: (i) a land-use change model (LUC) – defined by a dynamic set of sub-model drivers that describe the local causality of change and enable easy addition and removal of variables and the ability to play out ‘what-if’ scenarios; and (ii) impact assessment models that facilitate interpretation and analysis of land-use change depending on local interest and applicability – these help to assess ‘so-what’ questions and explicate the implications of a scenario.

In short, the suite consists of software for the userfriendly presentation of geographic information in maps, also linked to a timeframe. Moreover, it consists of a sketchbook for the drawing up of ideas and the storage and presentation of these ideas. In addition, with the help of a so-called ‘matchbox’, an overview is presented of scores of alternatives on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, and finally, the outcomes of the matchbox can be graphically displayed. It is foreseen this toolbox can be applied too in quite different contexts and will support more and more upcoming needs.

Geertman and J. Stillwell In the last chapter of Part I, Pettit and Wyatt present the outcome of an assessment of four different but relatively well-known PSS (SLEUTH, What if? Google Earth and Preference Prediction). These were tested for their functionality and capability in modelling, visualizing and evaluating a number of land-use change scenarios up until 2030. From this assessment it appears, perhaps not surprisingly, that each PSS has its strong and weak points but, especially in combined applications, they provide a remarkably useful toolbox for planners.
