Procedural Modeling of Cities: NetLogo

Thanks to the Electric archaeology blog, I have just been introduced to the Procedural Modeling of Cities pages from the Center for Connected Learning (CCL) and Computer-Based Modeling. The site has a number of simple to complex examples of city growth which might be of interest to those teaching basic concepts of urban systems via a modeling paradigm. I know they will come in handy with the courses I teach @ GMU.

Examples include the concepts relating to positive feedback, path dependence, sprawl which are part of the NetLogo Urban Suite .
