Land use caused by urbanisation is one of the main causes of political and social conflicts and altered environmental quality of land. It is a widespread feeling that the zero-balance objective (i.e. new areas can be urbanized only if already urbanized areas are restored) is feasible, at least in developed country, where the population is stabilizing around constant values. But it is very important to control the transient, between the current almost unrestricted situation and the zero-balance regime. Therefore, this paper proposes land uptake control procedures, based on geographical information systems and remote sensing.

Abstract

Land use caused by urbanisation is one of the main causes of political and social conflicts and altered environmental quality of land. It is a widespread feeling that the zero-balance objective (i.e. new areas can be urbanized only if already urbanized areas are restored) is feasible, at least in developed country, where the population is stabilizing around constant values. But it is very important to control the transient, between the current almost unrestricted situation and the zero-balance regime. Therefore, this paper proposes land uptake control procedures, based on geographical information systems and remote sensing.
