In this workshop, we will explore agent based modeling using spatial data as an environment.
An agent-based model (ABM) is a class of computational models for simulating the actions and interactions of autonomous agents (both individual or collective entities such as organizations or groups) with a view to assessing their effects on the system as a whole. - Wikipedia
NetLogo is an Open Source software that uses procedural code to create a space to spawn and observe "agents" within parameters you set.
We will cover some simple procedural coding, uploading a raster while preserving its space, creating agents, having them move across a known surface and output the collected data in a chart.
