Utilization of the empiric land use forecasting model for investigations of urban development planning strategies.
MetadataShow full item record
The first objective was accomplished by the solution of simultaneous linear equations, with nine equations for each of the three traffic zones. It was determined that the EMPIRIC Model did determine the future subregional land use variables with a high degree of reliability.
Goal programming was used to accomplish the second objective, and through a series of manipulations, a linear program was developed that would determine future transportation plans if realistic subregional land use variables were selected as goals.
It can be said that the EMPIRIC Land Use Forecasting Model is a definite aid in the urban planning process, and from its use, plans for a city's future can be formulated that will include simultaneous changes in both land use and transportation facilities.
