Exemplary is the effect of transportation infrastructure on the pattern of development. Road expansion and improvement not only lead to more development but may also lead to a different pattern through a reorganisation of the market structure, which then feeds back to further infrastructure development. Thus, certain trajectories of land use change may be the result of ‘lock in’ that comes from systems that exhibit autocatalytic behaviour. Connected to the temporal dimension of models is the issue of validation.
