The Implementation of the Uganda Agent Based Model
We focus on the seven districts mentioned in Chap. 9, located in the Central and Eastern regions of Uganda—Luwero, Mpigi, Masaka, Iganga, Mitiyana, Kamuli, and Mukono. We use available data to define the spatial, geographical and demographic environment of the agent based system. The spatial and geographical environment is captured using a network structure. The nodes of the network represent the GIS locations of villages in Uganda. The links between the village nodes correspond to the available road infrastructures which are primarily dirt road or paved/gravel roads.
