Spatial is an agent-based model of the movements of animals on landscapes. The landscapes can be entered from image files or from tables of data. Rules are entered to describe the attractiveness, permeability, and rate of movement of animals for each landscape feature (optionally including other animals). Spatial then simulates the movements over time, and dsiplays final location, tracks, or density of occupancy.
Spatial was developed and is owned by JP Pollak (Cornell University).
