Chapter 1 - Agent-based Modelling and Geographical Information Systems
This folder includes the accompanying resources for the chatper. For full book details, see: http://www.abmgis.org/.
The overarching aim of this chapter is to give the reader a contextual background and general overview of the major developments in geographical modelling for the simulation of the individual. The reader is introduced to a discussion around the purpose of modelling as well how complexity theory has influenced the way that we view (and simulate) geographical systems. We end the chapter by discussing the benefits of bringing together agent-based modelling and GIS.
The lecture slides for this chapter are available here: Chapter1 Lecture Slides. These act as a teaching aid for the chapter (with links to other online resources).
