As already described in the preceding chapter, the study ‘The Netherlands in the Future; The Second Sustainability Outlook’ (MNP, 2007) constructed alternative future spatial strategies for the Netherlands and evaluated them using a diverse set of sustainability indicators, such as flooding safety, biodiversity, accessibility and landscape protection. As in previous studies, Land Use Scanner was used here as an instrument to allocate demand for land of different land-use types within a region. At a regional level, this demand had been calculated earlier by sector-specific models for the Baseline scenarios. The analytical framework was further extended with the Tigris XL model, a Land Use and Transport Interaction model (Significance & Bureau Louter, 2007). The specific objectives for using the Tigris XL model in addition to Land Use Scanner were:
