Spatial statistical techniques have been developed to quantify spatial dependencies when using econometrics (Anselin, 2002; Bell and Bockstael, 2000). Spatial autocorrelation in land use patterns is scale dependent. At an aggregate level residential areas are clustered, having a positive spatial autocorrelation. , congestion effects. The presence of such an effect implies that, ceteris paribus, a parcel’s probability of development decreases as the amount of existing neighbouring development increases.
