MUSCAMAGS Project HOME
Project Brief Presentation
In an increasingly
interconnected and fast-changing world, decision makers from various
sectors (governmental, military, industrial, medical, social) need to
deal with multi-actor dynamic spatial situations
(MADSS) involving a large number of actors acting in geographic spaces
of various extents. There are numerous MADSSs that need to be monitored
in order to insure human security (flood, earthquake, wildfire), respect
of public order (crowd monitoring,evacuation of people, peace-keeping
activities) or adequate use of infrastructures (i.e. monitoring of people
and households transportation and shopping habits to better plan urban
infrastructures). When dealing with MADSSs, decision makers need appropriate
tools, especially to anticipate the consequences of their decisions.
In this context we propose to use multi-agent
geosimulation tools to model MADDSs, to simulate various scenarios and
assess possible outcomes. To learn more on that, click here.
MUSCAMAGS Project follows the MAGS
Project (Multi-Agent Geo-Simulation) which was funded by GEOIDE
between April 2002 and March 2005.
