Questions related to Land Use Planning
Are there any examples of good practices and new paradigms that you come across when considering agricultural land use (especially the measures taken by developing countries)?
I want to simulate the urban expansion using different time series LULC based on satellite image. please suggest me most suitable model for urban simulation.
Thanks and regards.
I have already been read many articles and found some methods but those are not cleared to me.
Can you please suggest me how to generate different LST map of each land classes using ArcGIS?
Or if you have any other methods to generate the LST of each land class please do recommend?
I am looking to evaluate the quality of a land use plan in my country. However I am limited by availability of criteria to use. Do you know of literature I can review or advice on standards used in the planning profession when conducting a plan quality evaluation?
Your response will be much appreciated.
What kind of dimensions can use to study comprehensive urban form? Most of the scholars have mentioned about the Density, accessibility and Land uses mix dimensions. But these dimensions can not capture well accurate urban form character. Other than that, what kind of dimensions can use to understand characters of the urbanity.
Different transportation, land-use, environmental, and other corresponding planners propose their work for new city urban plans in order to address the existing problems by identifying the major gaps they had. The existing land-use was following bad planning principles and it is already a failed plan. When planners integrate their proposed spatial plan to existing land use, they will have a real challenge in aligning. So, as a planner, what would be your choice to align the proposal you have with the existing land-use?
- Shall i follow the standard plan i have and remove the existing unplanned land-uses( NB: the compensation cost may be too large) ? or
- Shall i accept the existing situation as it is and compromise the planning standards?
What is your suggestion?
Any help is appreciated very much.
Hi guys, I am working on a research project that involves developing a sustainable land management strategy for a public sector organisation. I need good literature on the subject matter, any recommendations?
I am studying about Remote Sensing, especially the application of remote sensing in land use land cover classification. I have a little bit of experience in python programing and am looking for a good resource for learning Python for image classification of various image data. Can anyone give me such a good resource, please? Thanks in advance.
LUP through cities master plan for example in many countries is statutory based, fixed over longer terms (20 or more years), with many approval process even for minor amendments in any plan. Climate change impacts on the other hand are now real especially in coastal cities of Asia, Africa and even South America. my interest is to understand what exactly has been done in your country or the country you are aware of to make sure that long term land use plans are adequately aligned in favour of climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies.
I'd like some short opinion, or if possible, some literature recommendation.
Also, the discussion about this matter is welcome.

Can anyone please help me to find some research papers related to 'solving land use conflicts of an agricultural farm'?
I am looking for a support to complete my undergraduate project on developing a land use plan for an existing agricultural farm in Sri Lanka. I am a Survey Sciences student and I refer only the topographic aspect. Please if you are interested on that topic help me for develop the methodology.
I have calibrated and validated the baseline scenario. Now I want to develop another scenario with new land use map base on calibrated scenario. so I have the following questions:
1-should I start a new swat project and upload all data again and set parameters with the calibrated parameters?
2-can I copy the calibarted baseline and do as follows:
-copying the previous calibrated baseline scenarios
-noting to do with watershed delination
-uploading new land use map
-nothing to do with soil and slop map (they are the same as before; should we upload them again?)
-doing HRU definition
-nothing to do with weather data (should we upload them agin?)
-again creation of input
-rewrite the input data (land use data)
-read out put again
Thanks for the responses and regards,
In Italy many service sectors suffer from entry barriers and regulatory constraints. As regards retail trade, Legislative Decree 114/1998 had altered regulations in the direction of liberalization, delegating some powers in this sphere to the regions. Regions were asked to modify their land planning laws to account for commercial distribution that until then was regulated by a specific and separate planning instrument. However, many regions applied zoning to reintroduce quantitative and qualitative limits to the number and the type of stores to be allowed to enter the market. This was done in two main ways, through general planning documents stating how the region expected large retail establishments to develop and be located, and by setting the required standards to allow for their localisation.
There are many literature out there using land occupation of energy system as an sustainability indicator to evaluate energy technologies, certainly it is the case for technologies with impacts of both longevity and magnitude (such as nuclear plant), in the countries where demand for land is high or in regions of biodiversity hot-spot; but for country such as the UK where the land is abundant, I cannot understand how land-use affects or impacts on the sustainability of renewable technologies?
There could be visual impact on the landscape, for example in the case of onshore wind turbines, but this impact is rather subjective and not sufficient to be used as a good measure.
It is more and more clear that the solutions for a sustainable human development and also for a mitigation and adaptation to climate change have to follow a territorial strategy ( a territory as a landscape with people, thus a social process). The Millennium Ecosystem Approach in the proposed scenarios for 2050, shows that the adaptive mosaic development strategy, is the one that better supply the population with ecosystem services. In that sense a climate smart territory has to be managed in a way that contributes to sustainable human development and to climate change mitigation and adaptation.
Let me define the river boundary as the line usually along the river course, which has clearly distinguished the river area and the others. I assume that the river area is the non-usable area because of the high flood risk and inappropriate for people’s living. I learned river engineering in Japan. In the case of Japan, the river boundary has been designated by law and managed by the authority since 100 year ago, aiming at promoting the flood control works smoothly resulting into damage reduction. Due to the topographical condition in Japan, the river boundary is almost same as the existing dike alignment. So for Japanese people, the river boundary is quite clear because of the existence of the dike system which have been made mostly empirically in over one hundred years.
When I visit other countries for some flood risk management work, I recognize some of them are facing or in the process of solving the issue how to manage the riverine area which is flood-prone without dike, and how to define the river area as high risk area. Very often they have some laws, originating a kind of riparian law, which defines an easement from the river bank or normal water line as a constant distance such as 20m. But I see an argument if such constant easement is applied to the riverine area land use plan, the flood risk along the river is quite different from local people’s experience.
Japan learned such constant easement several decades ago from Europe, but since then Japan has already constructed dike along the river channel and managed the river area together with such dike, such argument on the constant easement is no longer discussed.
If you know some country / area who has the defined river boundary for the purposes of land use and/or river management, please share any information on the definition and the methodology to define empirically or theoretically.
Thank you very much.
I need to classify LISS IV data for land use planning but there is a lot of mixing signatures in between Roads and riverbed, Agriculture and Forest. So, i need some Hybrid Classification methods to do the same.....
We know the range of NDVI for barren lands is approximately less than 0.1 or 0.2, or for sparse vegetation is between 0.2 to 0.5 and for dense is >0.6, but for this research, in some of area we have dense gardens that after slicing, these gardens are named sparse vegetation! Probably, we don't know the difference of between poor or barren lands or sparse and dense and....
- I have generated rating curve for few gauging locations (located in different land cover) of lesser Himalayas and all have different rating curve parameters. Now I wanted to know the reason for these differences.
- Is they depends of land cover or some other geology, if so then how can I correlate it.
- Hydraulics plays important role there but all are mountainous streams so how the hydraulics can cause major difference there.

In landuse planning for future urban development in an area divided into regions, how can I decide the inter and intra zonal ratio of different land-uses in the same region and in different regions?
I am working on LULC change detection by applying change detection techniques like image differencing, image rationing, PCA, Tasseled Cap transformation which produce change or no-change binary output. After that I have done supervised classification of original image and then applied post classification. Now I want to do cross tabulation between the change detection results derived for different techniques against the post classification data. But I could not understand how to do?
For presentation lulc mapping there must be higher percentage of accuracy. For this some new techniques must be applied to obtain it.
Land-use change is exerting pressure across the globe, but where are the tipping points? We ought to focus our research there... but where, and what issues are most important to you?
When does the Post-Closure Period Of a Landfill Start ? According to the Criteria of Landfill, A Secured Landfill for Hazardous Waste has to be looked after for 30 years. The Post Closure Period is After 30 years ? Or is it After the Final Capping of the Landfill ? Or After the site is abandoned ?
Also, in Case a site consists of More than 2 landfills, Does the Post-Closure Period is combined for both the landfills, or is Considered Individual ?
Our municipality aim to widen a congested road inside the city in order to decrease congestion, while this road is not covered by public transportation yet .
I want to argue that if public transport cover this road no need to widen the road anymore .
The problem is not only to highlight the relationships among disciplines, but how to build (i) a transnational common vision: 城市规划, urbanistica, urbanisme et aménagement du territoire, raum- und stadt- planung, ...; (ii) a transdisciplinary vision with the agreement on operational protocols analysis, on data (ontology and semantic data), on the implementation of spatial data infrastructures, of interdisciplinary thesaurus and glossaries, all tools necessary to allow the exchange of knowledge.
The land consolidation or the land readjustment is crucial in most Indonesian urban areas, particularly cities having more than 500,000 people living in. These cities provide not enough streets for vehicles traveling and parking with a lot of small paths to walk rather than paths for motorized transportation. Irregular larger blocks dominate the pattern of urban structure with ineffective urban circulation. As a result, they create traffic jam and crowded movements. What is the best way forward to implement land consolidation?

What is the best classification of land use planning methodologies or approaches? any suggested good articles regarding this?
Green infrastructure can be defined as the design and development of infrastructure that works with natural systems in the performance of its functions. Green infrastructure recognizes the importance of the natural environment in land use planning decisions with particular regard to supporting the interconnected life support functions provided by the network of natural ecosystems (EPA 2007).
I'm working in a thesis about land use planning mining aggregates in Brazil. I need to know about some studies like that round the world.
any articles for optimizing land use planning using linear programming ?, Ben-Shahar article precisely?
Someone mentioned to me that Uruguay has land use legislation that takes into account the capability of soils to render certain services. Apparently, this legislation places restrictions on what can be done with prime agricultural land, for example. At the core of this legislation is a very innovative, older piece of legislation that links property taxes to the potential of soils, not to their use.
I am wondering if similar land use legislations exist in other countries. I have heard that Denmark has something along the same lines. Are these the only two countries that have done something in this area?
It would be nice to document such legislations in detail, to encourage other countries to follow suit... So if you have documents that relate to soil-protective legislations in other countries, feel free to send them to me . Thanks!!!
I need help for the "role of land use planning in tenure security". What can I read more in this area so as to get a complete overview of the connection between land use planning and land tenure security?
I am working on allocating water resources of a river basin by using linear programming. One of the inputs is inflow data which can be calculated by SWAT model.
I want to predict how much the stream flow will change respective to changes of land-use. I have already known the land-use planning in the study area up to next ten years, then I want to understand how this planning will impact to stream flow regarding quantity and distribution. So I need a tool to simulate this planning to digital files that can be used by ArcMAP and SWAT.
Could anyone give me a recommendation?
Creating and implementing protected areas in urban areas bring a lot of benefits to the city but might also bring a lot of conflicts, considering there is (usually) people living in or around the area. I wonder if/how impact assessment would be positively useful in these cases. Thanks for those who has something to share!
There are different types of droughts. Along with rainfall what are the other criterions for the delineation of drought prone regions of India.
I am new in this field of study. I would be please to know about disabled children development specifically on how land use planning can contribute to their accessibility for education.
I am intesrested in knowing that if we have different prices of fuel for different income groups then how would this help in reducing the usage of fuel thereby cutting down on environmental pollution. Also, how would this change the landuse pattern within the urban area. Or, would there be no change in land use?
I fail to differentiate where I can group the informal settlements, in customary or it should stay independent?. Because I find it in Urban and mostly in peri-urban area. I don't understand in creating a tree diagram for this.
A bridge to develop between the urban sprawl and climate change are the basic standards to follow for the new urban development which must be sustainable.
I want evaluating urmia lake ecosystem changes impact on regional spatial organisation. Actually as a effective force on spatial organisation change or reorganisation.
I am looking for historical statistics on land use and land cover for India at (sub-)district level for the period 1950-2010. Are there any unrestricted web portals/documents through which this information is made available?
How can we differentiate between natural factors and other economic factors that determine the price of lands? there are a plenty of factors that determine land price not in cities. it seems difficult to distinguish them or measure the effects of variables. I want to know some methodologies to find and measure these natural factors without including human factors such as distance to facilities or urban areas.
I've been working in a peasants community that had no land to cultivate (67 families), and now the government is creating a rural settlement where they will live. I'd like to ask if there is any methodology for planning the settlement at landscape level (the hole area has 1500 ha), for better use and preservation of natural resources, such as water and vegetation.
I have already made some maps of the area, such as: land use/cover, topography, euclidean distance from the rivers, riparian forest, land use around the springs and the division of the lots .
Now we shall try to design resilient agroecosystems and to plan a better way for land and water use, but I have no idea from where to start. Anyone had done it? Any article?
Thanks for helping!
Based on a previous question of last week related with the existing (possible) technological gap of GIS applications (software and hardware) between developed and developing countries, I understand that some projects (national or international) have promoted new aspects and objectives of Geospatial Technologies to certain, developing regions of the planet. Knowing and comprehending the value of GIS applications within such projects could give a pool list of further information, add-ons, experiences, ideas and implementation opportunities to other scientists so as to support the scientific community that currently is trying to develop projects with similar scope to other parts of the world and maybe, they are not familiar with the existence of and adjacent, helpful project.
Due to increasing population and land prices, people occupy state owned lands in many countries. Therefore, the question is how efficiently can RS and GIS technologies can be benefited for quick identification of such illegal occupants?
To evaluate the land-suitability for agriculture and forestry one can apply different GIS-based multicriteria methods (e.g. Analytical Hierarchy Process - AHP). Which one is more suitable?
I modeled urban growth in a city for 4 different scenarios. How to optimize the results of the modeled land use in (say) 2025 and choose a best one? Basically, I want to evaluate the scenarios quantitatively. I have the city master plan demand for 2025. Is it good just to compare the results with the master plan map or we can adopt any other method?
