An urban land use system is dominated by human activities with complex spatio-temporal dynamics. Traditionally, the global change research community has produced three kinds of spatial land use change models: empirical estimation models, dynamic simulation models and rule-base simulation models (He and Lo, 2007). Dynamic simulation models and empirical estimation models have been used to model land use changes. Rule-based simulation models are most suitable for incorporating spatial interaction effects and handling temporal dynamics.
Where: P: probability of urban expansion in the cell E(Y): expected value of the binary dependent variable Y Xi : predictor variables (socio-economic and environmental variables) β 0 : constant to be estimated β i : coefficient to be estimated for each independent variable Xi 3 A Spatial Logistic Regression Model for Simulating Land Use Patterns 31 The logistic function can be transformed into a linear response with the transformation (Pontius and Schneider, 2001): P = loge P 1−P (2) Hence n P = β0 Xi + βi Xi (3) i=1 The transformation (Eq.
