The rapid urbanization process in Asia has contributed to a distinctive urban pattern that is different from the West. Though it is believed Asian urbanization process is driven by local activities, some argue globalization also plays a key role in Asian urban dynamics and the distinctive urban pattern. To examine interactions of global/local factors in Asian urban dynamics, this study incorporates remote sensing imagery, GIS technology, and socio-economic data into a CA-based urban model. Taipei metropolitan area, one of the fast growing urban areas in Asia, is selected to examine this model. Our preliminary results indicate that the interaction between local and global processes closely interrelates to drive urban dynamics and shapes the unique urban pattern in Asia.
