allocate: Allocate land use change spatially

Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also Examples

Description

Perform spatially explicit allocation of land use change using different models. Currently the function provides an implementation of the Change in Land Use and its Effects at Small regional extent (CLUE-S) model (Verburg et al., 2002) and an ordered procedure based on the algorithm described by Fuchs et al., (2013), modified to allow stochastic transitions.

allocate(model, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'CluesModel'
allocate(model, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'OrderedModel'
allocate(model, stochastic = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

model

an object inheriting from class Model

...

additional arguments for specific methods

stochastic

logical indicating whether the model should be run stochastically. Only used if model is an OrderedModel object

Value

An updated Model object.
