Vermont Rural Land simulation

Following on from our previous post about sketch planning, we stumbled upon the YouTube movie below. It shows the use of CommunityViz to create the Vermont Rural Land simulation. The model explores how individual decisions though the use of ABM effect land use in the future. Furthermore it demonstrates how demographic and economic data can be incorporated into the simulation process and how future land uses can be changed with different land use policies through ‘what if’ styles of experiments.
