Pretty interesting article just published in JASSS. If you happen to be involved in agent-based simulation design, you know how bad your model can be screwed up by poor visualization. Here are some guidelines you might find useful.
Visualizations are not only important for communicating your results to an audience (wether it is made of fellow-scientists or of lay-persons). It is also crucial to foster understanding of the phenomenon the model is actually describing. So it is all the more surprising to see how many modellers create ineffective visualizations of agent-based models (ABM). (more…)
