CONCUR - From plans to land change: how strategic spatial planning contributes to the development of urban regions
Period: January 2016- December 2017
research project should help clarify how planning and policy affect land
change. The overall aim of the project is to bridge these distinct
paradigms and develop a scientific basis for adequately integrating regional
spatial policies into land-change modelling.
My task within the project is to establish a method for measuring the spatial information contained in strategic spatial plans. Precisely, this refers to procedures to translate information on envisioned development from plans into pixel maps and land change modelling rules.
