Call for Submissions

This paper session concerns GIS-based quantitative methods that land change scientists use, misuse, or should use. The focus is on the mathematical properties of the methods, not necessarily specific applications to case studies. We welcome papers that debate various methods to compare maps. We are interested in techniques to communicate historical change and algorithms to simulate future change. We want papers concerning how to analyze a time series of maps in terms of pixels, polygons or lines. We want to gain insights into the mathematical properties of the plethora of available pattern metrics. To see whether your idea is a good fit, please write to the session organizer Professor Robert Gilmore Pontius Jr (rpontius@clarku.edu).
