Abstract: The Municipality of Koper is one of the case studies in the European research project PLUREL. The project is aimed at developing new strategies and tools for future land use planning and prediction. Some scenarios for possible future land use have been prepared and spatially defined, based upon different indicators and trends, using the MOLAND model. The model is based on spatial dynamics, a key variable being the land use and the state of each cell is its land use class (e.g. residential, industrial, commercial, forest, agricultural land etc.). Based on the developed storylines of the scenarios, the model simulates changes in future land use and spatially defines the changes.
