Spatial Diffusion Modeling of New Residential Area for Land-Use Planning of Rural Villages

In this paper, a spatial diffusion model that can be applied to village development projects was developed with the expansion of a rural village taken into consideration, from the viewpoint of practical application with cellular automata techniques. The model determines and allocates a new built up area required for the expansion of existing villages. Cellular automata and land suitability analysis methods were combined in the model, which uses grid data from geographic information systems. Probability of land use optimizing the developed area was determined using a land suitability analysis method based on six criteria, which include the slope, drainage characteristics, and aspect of land and the distances from road, stream, and village center. Simulated and observed results of village shape in a land use map showed good similarities with each other through a morphology verification method. The model was also applied to the simulation of spatial changes according to three scenario plans, which made it possible to evaluate the spatial expansion of the village according to boundary conditions of the model, but also to simulate the village land use planning.
