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. However, they focus on simulation of spatial pattern rather than on interpretation or understanding of spatio-temporal processes of urban growth.
