Spatio-Temporal Information for Society: Classes Winter Semester 2014-2015


Additional library for the course

We have created an additional TerraME library to help with the course examples and exercises.

Install the Library for teaching TerraME in the directory <TerraME directory/contrib/courselib>. In Windows, this should be C:/TerraME/contrib/courselib. In Mac and Linux, this should be /usr/local/terrame/contrib/courselib. Create the subdirectory <TerraME directory/contrib/> is it does not already exist.

Papers for Final Projects

The final project consists of an implementation and discussion of an ABM model. Each of the references below contains a description of a model.
