Research Goal

- To define the mathematical foundation of a model of computation for multiplescaleLUCC modeling, the Nested Cellular Automata (Nested-CA) model.
- To implement the Nested-CA model of computation in a software architecture that provides support for all phases of the development of a multiple scale spatial dynamic model, the TerraME - Terralib Modeling Environment.

Cellular automata models

Agent based models

TerraME IdeaA Earth’s environment …

can be represented as a synthetic environment…

… where analytical entities (rules) change the space properties in time.

Several interacting entities share the same spatiotemporal structure.

Nested-CA Model of Computation

Space function is non-homogeneous

- basic concepts -

The Scale Concept

Scale is a generic concept that includes the spatial, temporal, or analytical dimensions used to measure any phenomenon.

Extent refers to the magnitude of measurement.

Resolution refers to the granularity used in the measures.

(Gibson et al. 2000)

- Components
- Grid of georeferenced cells:
- Unique ID
- Several attributes
- Generalized proximity matrix(GPM)

A discrete surface of squared cells. Each cell has one ID and several attributes.

The TerraME spatial model

The space local properties, constraints, and connectivity can be modeled by:

Each cell has a neighborhood that can be, possibly, different.

- Space is nether isomorphic nor structurally homogeneous.(Couclelis 1997)

- Actions at a distance are considered.(Takeyana 1997), (O’Sullivan 1999)

- a spatial structure: a lattice of cells

- a set of geographic data: each cell has various attributes

Basic concepts

Multiple scale model construction

Using nested scales

Space structure is non-homogeneous

Nested scales

Multiscale models can be developed

Diverse space partitions can have different scales

Introduction: Rondônia modeling exercise study areaFederal Government induced colonization area (since the 70s):

- Small, medium and large farms.
- Mosaic of land use patterns.
- Definition of land units and typology of actors based on multi-temporal images (85-00) and colonization projects information (Escada, 2003).
- Intersects 10 municipalities (~100x200 km).

- Occupation processes are different for Small and Medium/Large farms.
- Rate of change is not distributed uniformly in space and time:rate in each land unit is influenced by settlement age and parcel size; for small farms, rate of change in the first years is also influenced by installation credit received.
- Location of change: For small farms, deforestation has a concentrated pattern that spreads along roads. For large farmers, the pattern is not so clear.

Allocation Module: different factors andrules

Factors affecting location of changes:

Small Farmers (500 m resolution):

- Connection to opened areas through roads network
- Proximity to urban areas

Medium/Large Farmers (2500 m resolution):

- Connection to opened areas through roads network
- Connection to opened areas in the same line of ownerships

Allocation Module: different resolution, variables and neighborhoods

1985

- Small farms environments:
- 500 m resolution
- Categorical variable: deforested or forest
- One neighborhood relation:
- connection through roads

- Large farm environments:
- 2500 m resolution
- Continuous variable:
- % deforested
- Two alternative neighborhood
- relations:
- connection through roads
- farm limits proximity
