Creating a synthetic landscape: Spatial allocation of non-spatial single farm data

Sandra Uthes and Joachim Kiesel

Agricultural Systems, 2020, vol. 177, issue C

Abstract: Spatially explicit farm data are often not available for farm level studies and models, limiting the accuracy of simulating environmental impacts and posing limitations to agent-based models that simulate spatial decisions under explicit consideration of neighborhood effects (e.g. as on a land market). For large regions, such as the whole EU, different approaches have been developed to address this problem, e.g. by downscaling economic model results to lower-level administrative regions or by spatially allocating farm types to homogenous spatial entities. For smaller regions and if interactions between farms have to be considered, these approaches are too coarse.
