In response to growing urbanisation and the pressure to preserve natural, agricultural and forest land, precise knowledge of land occupancy has become a universal need. L’Institut Paris Region has acquired particular expertise in this field with its MOS land use approach created in 1982. This approach has multiple applications including: the monitoring of land consumption, master planning, the appraisal of public policies and urban planning documents, the understanding of infrastructure and transport needs, etc. These applications enable their many users to draw up their planning and development projects. At the international level also, L’Institut develops customised land use planning tools appropriate to all geographical contexts.
