Genetic Programming for Computationally Efficient Land Use Allocation Optimization

Authors: Moritz J. Hildemann, Alan T. Murray, and Judith A. Verstegen

Abstract
Land use allocation optimization is essential to identify ideal landscape compositions for the future. However, due to the solution encoding, standard land use allocation algorithms cannot cope with large land use allocation problems. Solutions are encoded as sequences of elements, in which each element represents a land unit or a group of land units. As a consequence, computation times increase with every additional land unit. We present an alternative solution encoding: functions describing a variable in space. Function encoding yields the potential to evolve solutions detached from individual land units and evolve fields representing the landscape as a single object. In this study, we use a genetic programming algorithm to evolve functions representing continuous fields, which we then map to nominal land use maps. We compare the scalability of the new approach with the scalability of two state-of-the-art algorithms with standard encoding. We perform the benchmark on one raster and one vector land use allocation problem with multiple objectives and constraints, with ten problem sizes each. The results prove that the run times increase exponentially with the problem size for standard encoding schemes, while the increase is linear with genetic programming. Genetic programming was up to 722 times faster than the benchmark algorithm. The improvement in computation time does not reduce the algorithm performance in finding optimal solutions; often, it even increases. We conclude that evolving functions enables more efficient land use allocation planning and yields much potential for other spatial optimization applications.

Short Paper
Route Choice Through Regions by Pedestrian Agents (Short Paper)

Authors: Gabriele Filomena, Ed Manley, and Judith A. Verstegen

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 142, 14th International Conference on Spatial Information Theory (COSIT 2019)


Abstract
Simulation models for pedestrian movement are valuable tools to support decision-making processes in urban design. However, existing models of pedestrian behaviour are built on simplistic assumptions regarding people’s representation of the urban space and spatial behaviour. In this work, a route-choice algorithm that takes into account regionalisation processes and the hierarchical organisation of geographical elements is adapted for pedestrian movement and incorporated into an agent-based model. The macro-level patterns emerging from two scenarios, one employing an angular-change minimisation algorithm and the other employing the regional algorithm here proposed, are compared for a case study in London, UK. Our routing algorithm led agents to recur to a higher number of street segments, i.e. routes were more diverse among agents. Though validation has not yet been performed, we deem the patterns resulting from the regional algorithm more plausible.
