- Cellular automaton: Square array of cells where each cell takes one of the 6 values representing the landscape on a 1-square mile resolution

- Evolving single-parameter model: A cell dies out at random times and is replaced by a cell chosen randomly within a circular radius r (1 < r < 10)

- Constraint: The proportions of land types are kept equal to the proportions of the experimental data

- Boundary conditions: periodic and reflecting

- Initial conditions: random and ordered
