Modeling of Land-Use and Ecological Dynamics by Dan Malkinson, Danny Czamanski, Itzhak Benenson

By Dan Malkinson, Danny Czamanski, Itzhak Benenson

As towns are quickly increasing and encroaching into agricultural and typical components, a query of basic drawback is how this growth impacts surrounding agriculture and common landscapes. This e-book provides a large spectrum of either theoretical and empirical techniques to simulation and evaluate of panorama dynamics. the 1st half offers state of the art modelling methods concerning land-use adjustments entailed via the city sprawl, at various spatial resolutions and temporal time scales. the second one half is devoted to case stories of the consequences and outcomes of the rising urban-agriculture open area patterns.

Example text

Together with the United Kingdom, the Netherlands is often seen as an example of quality zoning policy (Van der Valk and De Vries 1996). Zoning plans were previously designed by the central government and have always been strictly imposed. This has reduced urban sprawl; at the same time, it also designated zones for nature development mostly at the expense of agricultural land. Although the spatial planning policy has recently become more decentralized, and became less efficient as a result, during the period studied in this chapter, efficient top-down zoning policy was still in place.

These dynamics do not seem to be related with policy changes over time and may, in fact hint at the complex and coincidental relation between planning, economic opportunities and spatial developments. Exactly which development will take place at a particular location at a certain moment in time will depend on many factors. The Dutch planning system is notoriously slow in keeping up with changes (Van Rij 2009); spatial plans may need a long time to become reality because of the various governmental layers that may be involved and (legal) procedures that have to be followed.
