Using Simulation to Visualize Planning Outcomes
CM | 1.25
Date: Wednesday, April 17
Activity Code: S677
Room: Columbus Hall A/B
Agent-based modeling (ABM) simulations can help planners virtually examine the effects of policies that are both costly and risky to test in real life. Yet while popular within select academic sectors, ABM remains in great part a mystery to many of its potential users. This session provides the opportunity to engage in hands-on exploration of simple ABMs that show the interaction between land use, water use, and groundwater levels.
