Land Use Pattern

Prediction of land use patterns and vegetation types

Land-use patterns are determined both by physical attributes of a landscape and socio-economic factors. A project located in northern Hesse (Werra - Meissner - District) aims to evaluate how and to what extent physical factors control the land-use pattern and the distribution of vegetation types in a Central European rural landscape. Moreover, it intends to compare different temporal situations in order to find out, whether the relations between physical features (geomorphology, geology) and the land-use pattern have changed during the last 150 years.
