When distance to road parameter is removed in simulation process, ROC value has maximum decline. When elevation parameter is removed in simulation process, ROC value has minimum decrease, so, elevation parameter has no effect in simulation process. 5 Conclusions Urban expansion model has been implemented in this paper which takes advantage of GIS, LR and RS based on the utilization of a variety of social and environmental factors. LR modeling was used to identify and improve our understanding of the demographic, econometric and biophysical forces that have drive urban expansion and to find the most probable sites of urban expansion in SMA of Iran.

3)) is called a logic or logistic transformation (Pontius and Schneider, 2001). The transformed function allows linear regression to estimate each β i . Since each of the observations is a cell, the final result is a probability score (P) for each cell. The output of LR is a map of likelihood values, which specifies the relative likelihood of change for each cell based on the predictor variable values. 3 Model Evaluation Relative Operating Characteristic (ROC) was used to validate the LR model.

According to this approach, the result shows that the farmland in that region has rapidly increased in the past decade. This reflects the impacts of local policy that 2 Spatial Pattern Analysis 25 encourage cultivation for economy increasing. However, the conflict between farmland extension and the demand of water resource still exists. Farmland development has encountered the limit due to water supply. In order to better monitor land cover change and analyze the carrying capacity of cultivation in that region, an estimation model which can represent the relationship between water supply and farmland change is the goal of future work.
