This paper explores the application of multi-objective genetic algorithms (mGAs) to rural land-use planning, a spatial allocation problem. Two mGAs are proposed. Both share an underlying structure of: fitness assignment using Pareto-dominance ranking, niche induction and an individual replacement strategy. They are differentiated by their representations: a fixed-length genotype composed of genes that map directly to a land parcel's use, and a variable-length, order-dependent representation making allocations indirectly via a greedy algorithm. The latter representation requires additional breeding operators to be defined and post-processing of the genotype structure, to identify and remove duplicate genotypes. The two mGAs are compared on a real land-use planning problem, and the strengths and weaknesses of the underlying framework - and of each representation - are identified.
