We consider three approaches to learning natural resource models involving spatial relationships, based respectively on decision tree learning, genetic programming and inductive logic programming. In each case, the results of spatial learning on a natural resource problem are compared with the results of non-spatial learning from the same data, and...


... For describing the problem to be varied and expressive . GP has been applied successfully to many problems (Koza, 1990; Roston and Sturges 1995; McKay et al., 1997) and has been previously shown to be useful in developing time series expressions (Whigham and Crapper, 1999 ). A variant of GP, using a context-free grammar, has been developed to allow the user to explicitly define a language bias when searching for solutions . ...
