Development of Land Use Indicators for the Great Lakes Basin.

The State of the Lakes Ecosystem Conference process has, over the   past 12 years, developed and reported on a number of ecosystem health   indicators. One category of indicators falls under "land use", but   over the years no satisfactory set of indicators has been adopted.    This research project is designed to research usable indicators that   can report on changes in land use over whatever time period and   geographic scale are deemed appropriate by the end users (USEPA and   Environment Canada). Two or three large urban areas in each country   and two or three rural areas that are subject to urbanization will be   selected, and data gathered on appropriate measures of land use and   land use change (areas of various land use types, population density,   economic activity, zoning changes, soil types etc.). These data will   be geo-referenced through a GIS system so that trends in time of land   uses can be easily seen and related to factors driving those changes.
