Data Input





excluded layer


The excluded image defines all locations that are resistant to urbanization. Areas where urban development is considered impossible, open water bodies or national parks for example, are given a value of 100 or greater. Locations that are available for urban development have a value of zero (0).

Pixels may contain any value between (0-100) if the representation of partial exclusion of an area is desired - unprotected wetlands could be an example: Development is not likely, but there is no zoning to prevent it.

Pixel value range: 0 - 255 (values > 100, are read as 100)
