Mining GIS Data to Predict Urban Sprawl [article]

Anita Pampoore-Thampi, Aparna S. Varde, Danlin Yu
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In our work, spatiotemporal features related to real GIS data on urban sprawl such as population growth and demographics are mined to discover knowledge for decision support.  ...  Knowledge discovered by mining this spatiotemporal data is used to implement a prototype spatial decision support system (SDSS). This SDSS predicts whether urban sprawl is likely to occur.  ...  CONCLUSIONS We have addressed the issue of predicting urban sprawl by mining GIS data.  ...
