An Axiomatic Approach to a Measure of Land-Use Mixture

Yasushi Asami

Environment and Planning A, 1989, vol. 21, issue 4, 509-522

Abstract: A class of axioms which seem reasonable properties of a measure of land-use mixture is proposed. There are ten axioms: continuity, homogeneity, strict quasi-concavity, symmetry, area independence, ascent direction, exchangeability, reducibility, isotropy, and consistency. The proposed measure satisfying these axioms is represented by a function of the distance between a land-use ratio vector of a region in question and an average land-use ratio vector of other regions.
