Cellular Automata using Idrisi,

 

I’m not sure how can I use the Idrisi software to predict the future urban expansion. Could you please indicate where can I find an integrated example how to use the idrisi to solve this issue.

 

Thank you for the help,

 

Best

Look for the CA-Markov modules and LCM (land change modeler) modules in IDRISI Manual and tutorial (you get them at the help tab in the Menu). But the specifics would depend on what you want to achieve, you resolution, type of data, etc. As well as how far in the futur you wat to predict.

Check them out hopefully you'll get a first hint. Good luck!

Gaby.

Many thanks Gaby for the answer.

 

What I wished to find is a step by step example (with data) in how to use the CA_Markove but unfortunately I couldn’t find such helping material.

 

Please, let me know where can I find a step by step exercise (with data) in how to use the CA_Markove

Hi Jamal,

Basically, other than the CA-Markov chapter in the tutorial, you may wish to go through the MCE chapters (2.7-2.12). They are the best step-by-step exercises you'll find for developing the Transition Suitability Image Collection.

Good luck!

In CA_Markov module, an error saying: "file projected land cover area 2006.txt not formatted correctly". In the markov transition areas file slot: i've used the output as a .txt format  i got from Markov run. I have no idea what kind of specific format it was talking about, i didn't see anything from the Manual either.Any help appreciated.
thanks

The issue of the software that they don’t introduce an integrated example with screenshots so that one can smoothly get engaged on its environment.

 

Screenshots are much more powerful that “words”!

Hi,

I wanted to know how the transition potential maps were created in tutorial 3.6 of Idrisi Taiga. Do you have any socioeconomic data for the Westboro, MA? If yes, is it possible to provide some of the data? 

 

Thanks.

Hi, 

I have difficulties in how to scoring and weighting land suitability image.. Should it always 0 for not suitable and 1 for suitable ? 
Is CA MARKOV modul can accept continous score such as 0.8 or 1.5 ?

I really don't understand about this part.

Thank You for your help,

Indrian

You have to set default folder in IDRISI. Do not browse.
