This project examines urban sprawl as a
geographically diffusing phenomenon. Using parcel-level data from
Geauga County in Northeast Ohio, this project attempts to
quantitatively model the trends and patterns of spatiotemporal changes
in how land parcels are converted from vacant to built-up urbanized
Of special interest is the adaptation of the
Bass Model, a widely used analytical tool in marketing research, in
this project to enable not only the modeling of spatiotemporal changes
in land conversion but also prediction of future trends.
As this is an on-going project, comments,
suggestions, or collaboration will be highly appreciated.
