Spatio-temporal cartographic modelling of rural to residential landuse mutations in the urban region of Namur

Project: PHD

Project Details


This doctoral work aims to model the spread of residential surfaces in the urban region of Namur (10 communes). The methodology is based on a cellular automaton approach. The final goal of this model is to realize some simulations of the evolution of built surfaces in the medium term (10-20 years). (pending research)
