4. Model Prediction
This documentation will show how to use the coefficient set acquired through calibration to initialize future land cover change in a region. However, SLEUTH will execute in predict mode with any set of coefficients with values between 0 - 100 (not necessarily derived through calibration.)
4.1 Set constants
4.1.1. Update input data
This step is optional. SLEUTH maybe used to run alternative scenarios of regional growth by altering the input data used to initialize multiple prediction runs. Otherwise, the same input used for calibration maybe used. For more information on generating alternative scenarios click here.
4.1.2. Modify scenario file for prediction*
* These are recommended modifications for an average prediction run. Other output specifications are available in the scenario file. The user is encouraged to review the scenario file thoroughly in order to select and implement these utilities.
4.2. Run a prediction
4.3. Examine Output
