OR56 Annual Conference

Paul Edkins and Ben Schumann delivered a workshop on agent-based modelling in GIS environments at the OR56 conference on 10 September 2014 at the Royal Holloway University, London.

Through using innovative games, they where able to teach people how it feels to be an agent and how agents work. Moreover, they put people into a “real” GIS environment where they were challenged to come up with GIS-related ideas to solve the goal of the game.   Using AnyLogic, they provided a technical session for attendees to try out how agents exist in a virtual GIS model.
