Winter School “Spatial Simulation Modelling”, 13.-22. February 2019

Time is the most important characteristic of geospatial information: simulation extends our spatial view into the future! Simulation models help to gain a better understanding of complex, living systems. In this winter school, offered by UNIGIS Salzburg, you will get hands-on experience with the concepts and methods of spatially-explicit agent-based modelling and Cellular Automata and their applicationto explore complex systems. Models will target and integrate a range of domains and application areas in ecological and social sciences. Supported by experienced modellers, you will develop your modelling skills step-by-step. After the winter school, you will be able to conceptualise, implement and …
