This paper describes an application of fuzzy set theory to perform temporal interpolation in a raster GIS database. Specific fuzzy membership functions have been derived to simulate spatial changes between consecutive snapshots registered in the database. The proposed approach is tested on a very dynamic rural-urban environment of Montreal Metropolitan area in Quebec, Canada, covering the period from 1956 to 1986 with a temporal resolution of ten years. A user friendly software package named FUZZY_TEMP was developed and integrated in the GRASS4.1 environment in order to perform the implementation of the developed concepts.
