Geosimulation is hailed as the next big thing ingeographic modelling for urban studies. This book presents readerswith an overview of this new and innovative field by introducingthe spatial modelling environment and describing the latestresearch and development using cellular automata and multi–agentsystems. Extensive case studies and working code is available froman associated website which demonstrate the technicalities ofgeosimulation, and provide readers with the tools to carry outtheir own modelling and testing.
- The first book to treat urban geosimulation explicitly,integrating socio–economic and environmental modellingapproaches
- Provides the reader with a sound theoretical base in thescience of geosimulation as well as applied material on theconstruction of geosimulation models
- Cross–references to an author–maintained associated websitewith downloadable working code for readers to apply the modelspresented in the book
