SLUCEII LUXE (Land Use in an eXurban Environment) (version 2.0.0)

LUXE (Land Use in an eXurban Environment) is a land-use change model featuring different levels of land market implementation. It integrates land market interactions, the microeconomic determinants of willingness to pay (WTP) and willingness to accept (WTA), and utility measures for land buyers. LUXE implements utility maximization, budget constraints, and competitive bidding. It is written in Java with Repast Simphony®, with auxiliary geographic information system (GIS) and landscape components.
