Abstract. Urban cellular automata is used vastly in simulating of urban evolutions and dynamics. Finding an appropriate neighbourhood size in urban cellular automata modelling is important because the outputs are strongly influenced by input parameters. This paper investigates the impact of spatial filters on behaviour and outcome of urban cellular automata models. In this study different spatial filters in various sizes including 3*3, 5*5, 7*7, 9*9, 11*11, 13*13, 15*15 and 17*17 cells are used in a scenario of land-use changes. The proposed method is examined changes in size and shape of spatial filter whereas the resolution was kept fixed. The implementation results in Ahvaz city demonstrated that KAPPA index is changed in different shapes and types at the time when different spatial filters are used. However, circular shape with size of 5*5 offers better accuracy.
