ODD by Baptiste.Hautdidier — last modified 2008-10-22 16:48
ODD (=Overview, Design concepts, Detail) is designed as a general protocol for communicating individual-based and agent-based models. It has been formulated and tested by 28 authors . See Grimm & al. A standard protocol for describing individual-based and agent-based models. 2006. Ecological Modelling 198:115-126.
AgriPoliS by Baptiste.Hautdidier — last modified 2008-10-22 15:51
AgriPolis is an agent-based model of structural change in agriculture, developed as part of a doctoral thesis. Its main purpose is to understand how farm structures change in rural areas, particular in response to different parameter settings including different agricultural policies. Following a bottom-up approach, AgriPoliS integrates the key components of regional agricultural structures: heterogeneous farm enterprises and households, space, markets for products and production factors. These are embedded in a technical and political environment. (see also "Happe, K., Kellermann, K., Balmann, A. (2006): Agent-based analysis of agricultural policies: an illustration of the Agricultural Policy Simulator AgriPoliS, its adaptation and behavior. Ecology & Society 11 (1): 49. [online] URL:")
SimExplorer by Baptiste.Hautdidier — last modified 2009-11-06 10:33
SimExplorer is a software, currently under development, which aims at providing a generic environment for programming and executing experimental designs on complex models. The goals are multiple: (1) to externalise the development of the model exploration, in order to make available some generic methods and tools which can be applied in most of the cases for any model to explore; (2) to favour the reusability of available components, and therefore lower the investment for good quality model exploration applications; (3) to facilitate a quality insurance approach to model exploration. The first public release is planned for October 2008.
SEAMLESS-IF by Baptiste.Hautdidier — last modified 2008-10-22 15:51
SEAMLESS-IF is the new Framework for Integrated assessment of Agricultural systems - modeling the impacts on Agriculture and Environment. Developed by the FP6 project SEAMLESS
IMAGE by Baptiste.Hautdidier — last modified 2008-10-22 15:51
IMAGE is an ecological-environmental framework that simulates the environmental consequences of human activities worldwide. It represents interactions between society, the biosphere and the climate system to assess sustainability issues like climate change, biodiversity and human well-being. The objective of the latest version of IMAGE (version 2.4 released in 2006) is to explore the long-term dynamics of global change as the result of interacting demographic, technological, economic, social, cultural and political factors.
GTAP by Baptiste.Hautdidier — last modified 2008-10-22 15:51
GTAP, the Global Trade Analysis Project, is coordinated by the Center for Global Trade Analysis, which is housed in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University. GTAP's mission is to provide leadership in economic policy analysis through better data, fostering collaboration and research. The standard GTAP model is a multiregion, multisector, computable general equilibrium model, with perfect competition and constant returns to scale. Bilateral trade is handled via the Armington assumption.
GLOBIO by Baptiste.Hautdidier — last modified 2008-10-22 15:51
The GLOBIO (Global Methodology for Mapping Human Impacts on the Biosphere) consortium aims to develop a global model for exploring the impact of environmental change on biodiversity. It is designed to support UNEP's activities relating to environmental assessment and early warning. The advanced GLOBIO3 model will provide an analytical framework for bringing together biodiversity and environmental change data, thereby supporting the integration of the environmental assessments in which UNEP is involved. It will include land use, infrastructure, climate change, invasive species and pollution among other pressures. The model will also inform the development of scenarios on the potential impacts of environmental change, enabling the implications of different conservation and development policy options to be explored. By estimating biodiversity impacts from human activities, overviews of past, present and potential future impacts can be derived.
