Mason-Yale Project on Computational East Africa

Dr Claudio Cioffi-Revilla, Principal Investigator, George Mason University



Mission: To develop new agent-based spatial simulation models for
analyzing scenarios of societal consequences of disasters in the East Africa region.


This project began in Fall 2008. Funding for this project is provided by the Center for Social Complexity of George Mason University and by the Office of Naval Research ONR MURI grant no. N00014-08-1-0921, Code 34, Program Officer: Dr. Rebecca Goolsby. The opinions, findings, and results are those of the investigators and do not reflect the views of the sponsors.

One outcome of our research is an open-source extension to the multi-agent simulation package MASON that adds basic Geospatial Information System (GIS) capabilities. This extension, GeoMason, allows users to read, write, and render GIS data. It also allows for basic spatial operators, such as determining adjacency, spatial object unions and intersections, and if an agent is within a region.
