Towards DEVS-Based Simulations of GeoAgent-Based Models with Decentralised Dynamic Properties

Abstract

This paper is based on work in progress for integrating simulations of agent-based models with geographic information systems using a DEVS-based approach. Work on multi-agent systems (agents-centric view) and geographic information systems (resource-centric view) reveals that actual platforms do not provide truly integrative modelling and simulation of both views. We argue that actual DEVS-based simulators facilitates that integration, providing a process of composing behaviours depending of time passage, however other mechanisms are needed to enable decentralised dynamic interactions of agents in spatio-temporal contexts.
