GAMA: A Spatially Explicit, Multi-level, Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation Platform
Agent-based modeling is now widely used to investigate complex systems but still lacks integrated and generic tools to support the representation of features usually associated with real complex systems, namely rich, dynamic and realistic environments or multiple levels of agency. The GAMA platform has been developed to address such issues and allow modelers, thanks to the use of a high-level modeling language, to build, couple and reuse complex models combining various agent architectures, environment representations and levels of abstraction.
