Published Dordrecht ; New York : Springer Netherlands, ©2012


Description 1 online resource (viii, 759 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Contents pt. 1. Computational modelling : techniques for simulating geographical systems -- pt. 2. Principles and concepts of agent-based modelling -- pt. 3. Methods, techniques and tools for the design and construction of agent-based models -- pt. 4. Fine-scale, micro applications of agent-based models -- pt. 5. Linking agent-based models to aggregate applications
Summary This unique book brings together a comprehensive set of papers on the background, theory, technical issues and applications of agent-based modelling (ABM) within geographical systems. This collection of papers is an invaluable reference point for the experienced agent-based modeller as well those new to the area. Specific geographical issues such as handling scale and space are dealt with as well as practical advice from leading experts about designing and creating ABMs, handling complexity, visualising and validating model outputs. With contributions from many of the world's leading research
