Abstract: Since 1998 the IES has implemented the following elements for a growing and representative sample of cities and urbanised regions: (1) high resolution spatial databases of land- use change over approximately 40 years, (2) urban sustainability indicators, and (3) a modelling framework enabling the implementation and use of hybrid land-use models representing urban regions ranging from the single, average sized city to complex hierarchies of cities. The core of the latter framework enables the configuration of dynamic spatial models operating at a macro- and a micro-geographical scale. Both levels are intimately linked to one another thus permitting an integral and detailed representation of the evolving spatial system.
