This chapter summarises the main findings of an international scientific audit of the Land Use Scanner and Environment Explorer models as described in the report of the audit committee (Timmermans, Batty, Couclelis & Wegener, 2007). Both models are part of the LUMOS toolbox maintained by the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. The audit was based on a selection of documents (reports, conference papers and journal articles) related to these models, and a site visit at PBL that took place from 8 to 9 January 2007, during which a series of presentations about and software demonstrations of the models were given.
