Chapter 4 - Building Agent-Based Models with NetLogo
This folder includes the accompanying resources for the chatper. For full book details, see: http://www.abmgis.org/.
This chapter provides an overview of the programming language and concepts that are used within NetLogo. NetLogo basics, such as how to create a simple environment, commands and procedures, are presented with step by step instructions for creating a simple model. Following this basic model, more advanced features are introduced. The overall aim of this chapter is to provide an understanding of the main components that make a NetLogo program. Subsequent chapters build upon the basics presented here.
There are two models available in the Models directory:
first_model.nlogo presents the simple model that the chapter discusses first;
advanced_model.nlogo presents the more complicated model, with grass that can be eaten (see the image below).
