[en] Land-use change models are useful tools for assessing and comparing the environmental impact of alternative
policy scenarios. Their increasing popularity as spatial planning instruments also poses new scientific
challenges, such as correctly calibrating the model. The challenge in model calibration is twofold: obtaining
a reliable and consistent time series of land-use information and finding suitable measures to compare model
output to reality. Both of these issues are addressed in this paper. The authors propose a model calibration
framework that is supported by information on urban form and function derived from medium-resolution remote
sensing data through newly developed spatial metrics. The remote sensing derived maps are compared to
model output of the same date for two model scenarios using well-known spatial metrics. Results demonstrate
a good resemblance between the simulation output and the remote sensing derived maps.
