Spatial Resolution
The model is intended for metropolitan regions. Model grid is based on census tracts but can be as small as parcel level grids.
Temporal Resolution
The model is intended for long term planning. Typical simulation durations are 30 years with yearlong time steps.
Outputs
Outputs include urban development patterns, real estate prices, employment predictions and human movement patterns.
