Many may and have argued that spatial planning is a “probability theory”, as long
as it predicts the future use and development strategies for land and operates in
an uncertain development context. The more sophisticated the methods and tools
for increasing predictability through scientific analysis become, the more increases
the number and type of factors to be involved in the complex models that spatial
planning uses. As a result, proposing good and appropriate planning solutions remains
a major challenge for spatial planners.
