Models of Transportation and Land Use Change: A Guide to the Territory

High complexity characterizes modern urban regions. Researchers have produced a rich variety of interrelated urban change process models, despite the difficulty of modeling every relevant urban region aspect. Models dealing with the relationship between land use and economic activity location changes and transportation network growth, embodied in the accessibility concept, are the most popular types. The authors review some of the more common land use and transportation change modeling frameworks, using some operational models with real-world setting applications as examples for illustrating each. New future urban modeling research directions are then identified and important contributions of the field to date are noted.
