Clue-s Model Software (Open Source)


Model spatial are translated into land use changes at different locations within the study region using a raster-based system. The user-interface of the CLUE-S model only supports the spatial allocation of land use change. For the land use demand module different model specifications are possible ranging from simple trend extrapolations to complex economic models. The choice for a specific model is very much dependent on the nature of the most important land use conversions taking place within the study area and the scenarios that need to be considered. The results from the demand module need to specify, on a yearly basis, the area covered by the different land use types, which is a direct input for the allocation module.
