A Semester with Spatial Agent-based Models

With the spring semester over, I thought I would show some of the final agent-based modeling projects that were carried out in CSS 645: Spatial Agent-based Models of Human-Environment Interactions. As always I was quite impressed the models and we had a plethora of topics ranging from mobile agent-based models, shopping, pick pocketing, route finding, travel to work, the spatial spread of information, deer management, urban growth etc... What is interesting is that while the majority of models are implemented in NetLogo, more and more are being done in Python.

Something new for this semester is we also tried to reproduce a published model. Below you can see 3 examples of such work. Click here to see a previous post on reproduction and replication.
