|Description=IMAGE 3.0 uses a regression-based suitability assessment to determine future land-use patterns. Optionally, the IMAGE allocation module can be coupled to CLUMondo ([[Van Asselen and Verburg, 2013]]) [ADD LINK TO ADDITIONAL INFO PAGE] providing a more detailed representation of land-use systems and their dynamics.

Land-use allocation is driven by regional crop and grassland production and their respective intensity levels, as calculated by the IMAGE agro-economic model ([[Agricultural economy]]). Agricultural land use is allocated to grid cells in an iterative process until the required regional production of crops and grass is met. Land use in IMAGE is modelled using dominant land use per grid cell on a 5 x 5 minute resolution, distinguishing extensive grasslands, agricultural and non-agricultural grid cells, and within agricultural land areas fractions of grass, seven rain-fed and seven irrigated crop types, and bioenergy crops.
