stppSim v1.2.3: Spatiotemporal Point Patterns Simulation



Generates artificial spatiotemporal (ST) point patterns through the integration of microsimulation (Holm, E., 2017) and agent-based models (Bonabeau, E., 2002). Allows a user to define the behaviours of a set of ‘walkers’ (agents, objects, persons, etc.) whose interactions with the spatial (landscape) (Quaglietta, L. and Porto, M., 2019) and the temporal domains produce new point events. The resulting ST patterns from the point cloud can be measured and utilized for spatial and/or temporal model testings and evaluations.

Application of ‘stppSim’

Application: With increasingly limited availability of fine-grained spatially and temporally stamped point data, the package provides an alternative source of data for a wide range of research in social and life sciences. The R user manual and the vignette demonstrating the general application of the package can be downloaded from here.
