Résumé

This paper represents an attempt to combine a geographical information system (GIS) and satellite imagery within a numerical model for the simulation of regional urban growth. The area under study is located in the southeast of France, between the cities of La Ciotat and Toulon. It covers 1600 km2. The spatial resolution of the GIS as well as of the remote sensing data is better than one hectare (80 x 80 m2). Seven environmental parameters are defined by pixel and originate from the content of the database, namely, land use, topography, road network, forest properties and forest fire characteristics. The initial state (year 1976) and the simulated states for the years 2000 and 2025 are compared and the differences are discussed briefly.
