The purpose of this document is to describe the tools and models generated for the Integrated Climate and Land Use Scenarios (ICLUS) project led by the US EPA's Global Change Research Program in the Office of Research and Development's National Center for Environmental Assessment (USEPA 2009). The tools and models described in this document provide users with the ability to generate, visualize, and analyze spatial datasets about residential housing growth in the coterminous US. ICLUS consists of a demographic and a spatial allocation model. The tools described in this document use output from the demographic model, but do not allow modifications to that model. The tools do, however, provide users with the ability to modify some of the parameters of the spatial allocation model.
