Constructing and implementing an agent-based model of residential segregation through vector GIS

  title={Constructing and implementing an agent-based model of residential segregation through vector GIS},
  author={Andrew T. Crooks},
  journal={International Journal of Geographical Information Science},
In this paper, we present a geographically explicit agent-based model, loosely coupled with vector GIS, which explicitly captures and uses geometrical data and socio economic attributes in the simulation process. The ability to represent the urban environment as a series of points, line and polygons not only allows one to represent a range of different sized features such as houses or larger areas portrayed as the urban environment but is a move away from many agent-based models utilising GIS… CONTINUE READING
