As cities become increasingly populated, urban planning plays a key role in ensuring the equitable and inclusive development of metropolitan areas. MIT City Science group created a data-driven tangible platform, CityScope, to help different stakeholders, such as government representatives, urban planners, developers, and citizens, collaboratively shape the urban scenario through the real-time impact analysis of different urban interventions. This paper presents an agentbased model that… 


The Impact of New Mobility Modes on a City: A Generic Approach Using ABM
A new generic model is proposed that creates an artificial micro-world which allows the modeler to create and modify new mobility scenarios in a quick and easy way and helps to better understand the impact of new mobility modes on a city, but also fosters a better-informed discussion of different futures.
CityScope: A Data-Driven Interactive Simulation Tool for Urban Design. Use Case Volpe
The methodology behind the basic analysis and visualization elements of the tool and the tangible user interface are outlined, to demonstrate an alternate solution to urban design strategies as applied to the Volpe Site case study in Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA.
A Spatially Extended Model for Residential Segregation
We analyze urban spatial segregation phenomenon in terms of the income distribution over a population, and an inflationary parameter weighting the evolution of housing prices. For this, we develop a
What’s your MoCho? Real-time Mode Choice Prediction Using Discrete Choice Models and a HCI Platform
The choice model was well fitted and the parameters showed significant associations with a range of explanatory variables including travel times, residential and employment densities and personal attributes like age, gender, education-level and home-ownership.
Household location decisions are closely related to other choices of housing, automobile ownership, and mode to work. This paper describes a model that considers these long-run decisions, termed the
The Intention to Move and Residential Location Choice Behaviour
This paper aims to quantify the extent to which transport and other factors impact on residential decisions using Oxfordshire, UK, as a case study. It investigates the impacts of the current
Agent-Based Modelling of Residential Mobility, Housing Choice and Regeneration
Dynamics in the housing market can be simulated using agent-based modelling. Focusing on the theme of urban regeneration, we present a housing market model framework which explores the causal
An Empirical Test of a Joint Model of Residential Mobility and Housing Choice
A nested multinomial logit (MNL) model is used to estimate the joint choice of moving and housing selection. The coefficients are derived from a sequential application of the standard MNL model using
Building, composing and experimenting complex spatial models with the GAMA platform
This paper presents GAMA 1.8, the latest revision to date of the platform, with a focus on its modeling language and its capabilities to manage the spatial dimension of models.
