A novel algorithm for calculating transition potential in cellular automata models of land-use/cover change
Environmental Modelling & Software
Despite recent advances in quantifying land-use/cover change (LUCC) transition potential, transition rules are often not transparent and uncertainty is rarely made explicit. Here, we introduce DoTRules-a dictionary of trusted rules-as a transparent alternative to calculate transition potential in cellular automata models. Rules relate LUCC variables to the observed historical changes. Shannon entropy is calculated to assess the uncertainty of each rule, and the most trusted rules are used todoi:10.1016/j.envsoft.2018.10.006 fatcat:g2fxzimtebaflk3ze7u4r74aky
