Integrating Geographic Information Systems and ABM

We do not often publicise books on this blog but we felt we would make an exception with this book: "Integrating Geographic Information Systems and Agent-Based Modeling Techniques for Simulating Social and Ecological Processes" edited by Randy Gimblett. According to Google Scholar it is cited 78 times in a diverse range of articles.

For those interested in integrating GIS and ABM, this book provides one of the first detailed accounts of such integration and its applications. Including articles by Westervelt on the coupling of GIS and ABM and various articles by Gimblett and others which highlight how GIS can be combined with ABM thus allowing one to relate models directly to place.

Other books which we have found valuable in our research can be found in our reading list.
