Controlling patterns of geospatial phenomena

Tomasz F. Stepinski, Wei Ding, Christoph F. Eick
2010 Geoinformatica  
Modeling spatially distributed phenomena in terms of its controlling factors is a recurring problem in geoscience.  ...  The method is based on association analysis technique of identifying emerging patterns, which is extended in order to be applied more effectively to geospatial data sets.  ...  In general, footprints associated with controlling patterns are not mutually exclusive and exhaustive, instead they overlap and their union does not necessarily cover the entire extent of the phenomena  ...

Deconstructing Geospatial Agent-Based Model: Sensitivity Analysis of Forest Insect Infestation Model [chapter]

Taylor Anderson, Suzana Dragićević
2017 Advances in Geographic Information Science  
Agent-based models (ABM) can be used to represent the spatio-temporal dynamics of real world geospatial phenomena, however because of their complexity, they can be difficult to implement and validate.  ...  This study uses the invariant-variant validation approach to further model testing of a developed ABM of forest insect infestation representing spatio-temporal dynamics of the emerald ash borer (EAB).  ...  The datasets were provided by the Town of Oakville, Canada. The authors are thankful to Compute Canada WestGrid high-performance computing facility for enabling model simulations.  ...
