GIS, Geocomputation & Geoplanning (GEOG3150)
This module is about understanding and modelling urban and regional systems. Whether planning cities, modelling crime or analysing ethnic segregation, the process of gathering data, analysis, mapping and developing models is similar. The module provides an introduction to key tools used in research and consultancy. Semester 2 focusses on geocomputation: building simple urban simulations; agent-based modelling in NetLogo; complexity; social modelling; and visualising / interpreting simulation results.
As part of the module, I have developed six practicals for NetLogo that teach you how NetLogo works, and ultimately finish with the development of a model to experiment with crime reduction strategies in a music festival (see below)
Semester 2 has its own website:
