Abstract and Keywords

The main objective of this chapter is to provide a comprehensive review and critique of the empirical modeling literature of land use decisions, focusing particularly on the strengths and weaknesses of different spatial econometric modeling approaches and important future research directions. The objective is accomplished by providing (1) a comprehensive review of the literature on spatial econometric modeling of land use decisions, (2) a case study to illustrate one of the approaches, (3) an overall assessment of different approaches, and (4) a discussion of important directions and challenges for future research. This chapter contributes to the general understanding of spatial econometric modeling as a tool for evaluating policies designed to influence land development patterns. Advances in spatial econometric modeling allow policy makers to design land use management policies that are more effective in stimulating the desired response from a system characterized by spatial interactions.

Keywords: land management, land development patterns, land use decisions, spatial interactions, spatial econometric modeling
