Most of these approaches describe historic land use conversions as a function of the changes in driving forces and location characteristics. This approach often results in a relatively low degree of explanation due to the short time-period of analysis, variability over this time period and a relatively small sample size (Hoshino, 1996; Veldkamp and Fresco, 1997). , 1998; Hoshino, 2001). A drawback of the statistical quantification is the induced uncertainty with respect to the causality of the supposed relations.
