Abstract
Cellular automata (CA) modeling is one of the recent advances in spatial-temporal modeling techniques to the field of urban growth dynamics. A number of CA-based models of urban growth have produced satisfactory simulations of spatial urban expansion over time. The paper explained the parameters, transformation and calibration of the SLEUTH model-one specific format of the cellular automation model, on the base of which the process of urban growth of changsha city between the year 1996 and 2005 is rebuilt. Moreover the spatial morphology of Changsha city in 2015 and 2030 is separately predicted with the method of scenario simulation. The results of analysis and simulations indicate that application of the SLEUTH model to simulation of urban growth is advisable and the accuracy of simulation is acceptable.
