Paving New Ground
AbstractThis paper explores the inter-connectedness and co-evolution of transportation networks and land use through the application of a Markov Chain model to the Twin Cities from 1958 through 1990. This model investigates how individual cells, with both land use and transportation network attributes, change over time. Cells with more transportation network available are more likely to develop, and cells that are developed are more likely to attract additional highway investment.
