Urban Dynamics looks at land use and change in urban environments, in order to provide a perspective of land use change and an assessment of the spatial patterns, rates, correlation, trends, and impacts of that change. The main goal is to provide a greater understanding of the land use and the changes occurring in the city.
This is done by:
- Developing methods for land use reconstruction, geographic analysis, and regional assessments of urban land use change.
- Identify the spatial linkages between the physiographic and socio-economic variables that contribute to urban growth.
-Develop and test models for predicting future land transformations with some statistically defined confidence.
-Provide the public and decision-makers with the data and information resources needed to make informed decisions regarding future development and environmentally sustainable economic growth.
