EMPIRICAL MODELS OF URBAN LAND USE: SUGGESTIONS ON RESEARCH OBJECTIVES AND ORGANIZATION

FOLLOWING A PRESENTATION OF LAND USE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING STUDIES AND AN OVERVIEW OF LAND USE MODELING, SIX RECENT MODELS ARE DISCUSSED. IN THE SURVEY OF THESE MODELS TWO VALUABLE CONTRIBUTIONS TO THIS FIELD ARE MADE. FIRST, REASONABLY COMPLETE AND ACCURATE SUMMARIES OF SEVERAL CURRENT EFFORTS IN THE FIELD OF LAND USE MODELING ARE PRESENTED. THESE SUMMARIES PROVIDE THE INTERESTED LAYMAN WITH AN INTRODUCTION TO ACTIVITIES IN THIS FIELD, AND THE LAND USE MODELER WITH A SURVEY OF WHAT HAS BEEN DONE OR ATTEMPTED ELSEWHERE. THE SECOND CONTRIBUTION IS IN THE FORM OF WHAT IS HOPED TO BE PRODUCTIVE CRITICISM OF THESE MODELS, AS WELL AS SUGGESTIONS FOR POSSIBLE IMPROVEMENTS IN CURRENT MODELING TECHNIQUES. IN CONCLUSION, A CRITIQUE OF THE CURRENT STATE OF LAND USE MODELING AND SOME OBSERVATIONS ABOUT ORGANIZING RESEARCH AND MODEL BUILDING FOR TRANSPORTATION PLANNING ARE PRESENTED.
