Land use and transportation systems are considered as two most important subsystems determining urban form and structure, and are assumed to mutually influence each other overtime. To better understand the relationship between them, we build a simple dynamic model to simulate longterm urban growth instead of a static one. Our urban simulation combines vector road network growth with grid land use dynamics. Vector model has advantages in topological analysis and we use space syntax metrics to control road network growth by estimating road traffic flow, which is also adopted to calculated accessibility for land use simulation. The land use model includes five land use categories and two behavior sub-models: mobility model and location choice model. Our preliminary simulation results show similar land use patterns of how real cities grow.
