Abstract

Building a good simulation model can be a lot of work. We need
to specify and model the system to be simulated, implement the model, collect
data on the corresponding real system (if any), verify and validate the simulation
system and run the simulation. In order to test different ideas, to learn about the
system behavior in new situations and to make efficient decisions, decision makers
need ways to explore the simulation outputs easily and rapidly. Geosimulation
users need tools to analyse the spatial output data. In this paper we present
an approach which combines spatial on-line analytical processing (SOLAP)
techniques with multiagent geosimulation techniques in order to improve the exploration
of spatial and non-spatial data resulting from geosimulations. As an example,
we present the application of our approach to the simulation of the shopping
behavior of customers in a shopping mall.
