Urban fringe is the foreland in the process of "urban sprawl", especially in developing countries e.g. Bangladesh. The rapid land use changes in this transitional and semi-urban system often puzzled urban researchers. Recently, a spatially explicit model named CLUE (Conversion of Land Use and its Effects) is widely applied to explore the spatial and temporal dynamics of land use. It provides a useful tool to understand the complex and dynamic spatial pattern of urban fringe better. CLUE model is designed to obtain insights into the complexity of the land-use situation as well as to explore and quantify near-future pathways of land-use development. The approach used in the CLUE modeling framework to allocate land-use changes attempts to account for the entire system of complex interactions between historic and present land use, socio-economic conditions and biophysical constraints. Interactions between land-use elements and the scale dependency of both the structure and function of the land-use pattern are explicitly addressed as well.
