An Analysis into Human Drives of Land Use Changes in Chaloos County Abstract Human and his activities are known as one of the drives for land use changes through. Therefore, different analysis methods are used in modeling land use changes in order to model such drive. However, as a method to recognize land use pattern in the future, regional models of land use changes have been developed in recent decades based on quantitative and eventual methods. Distinction between different models in this field is resulted by the type of approach to the concept of land use change and the type of indexes used in the modeling process. In this study, spatial modeling was introduced based on microeconomic concept in order to maximize the gains resulting from changes and the way to influence priorities for establishment of land use zones was also specified. This model will adjust cost-benefit function by spatial factors using spatial models and analyses and will calculate priorities for the establishment of a variety of zones based on regional conditions. The results of this model shows that specific conditions of Chaloos county due to environmental constrains have caused to allocate a major portion of the city to environmental and agricultural developments so that it places spatial limits to the establishment of urban and industrial development in the region. Northern coast and central parts of the county are the merely economical parts for the establishment of these two kinds of land use.
