In this exercise urban change and spatial development pattern of the land use in the city of Villavicencio, Colombia, will be analyzed. Needed are the urban land use maps of three years (1960, 1978 and 1991), and raster maps of the low-standard settlements (in 1991), the land values (in 1991), the slopes and the distance to the main roads. Additionally, vector maps of the main roads (in 1960 and 1991) and the rivers are included for orientation purposes.
