A dynamic geo-referenced land use/cover model ( clue-cr ) which simulates simultaneous local, regional and national land use/cover changes in Costa Rica is presented and discussed. clue-cr simulates the effects of changing demographical and biophysical driving forces on land use/cover change in Costa Rica, including feedbacks from land use/cover to those forces. The multi-scale aspect of the model allows the simulation of realistic system dynamics related to the interaction of top-down and bottom-up effects and constraints. As a model clue may be implemented for other countries and has the potential to be scaled down and/or up to link with regional land use models or integrated global change models.
