Special Issue: Land Use and Land Change
In this special issue of Cartographica on land-use change, researchers from both Europe and the Americas show how different perspectives and methods of analysis can be used to investigate the processes that affect the changing landscape. These studies demonstrate how human activity, local culture, economic and environmental conditions, land-use policies, and development plans all affect changing land use. The authors use both mathematical models and their own knowledge of the communities considered to provide an understanding of how and why the landscape has evolved. Their approach is consistent with placing people at the centre of this evolutionary process, as it emphasizes the importance of individuals in determining landscape development and resolving and reconciling environmental issues.
