Spatial structure is the result of locational decisions reflecting criteria operating at a variety of scales. Thus the CA land use model is augmented with a regionalized, spatial interaction based dynamic model of population and employment that captures spatial processes operating at intermediate scales. The model is structurally very similar to typical transportation models, but with output representing yearly migrations of activity rather than hourly flows. The regional activity totals generated by the model are translated into cell demands for the various land uses, so the CA is now constrained regionally rather than globally. This integrated multiscale model continues to be linked interactively to demographic, economic and other relevant models. For some applications a transportation model is included in order to produce a high-resolution LUTI (Land Use – Transportation Interaction) model. Applications to Dublin (including one for wastewater treatment infrastructure planning) The Netherlands, Puerto Rico, and New Zealand are discussed.
