This is the home page of the MABEL (Multi Agent-based Behavioral Economic Landscape) Model. The model is based on the SWARM modeling package. The model is designed to simulate land use changes over time. Important features of the model include: sequential Markov chain construction, a knowledge base, Bayesian Belief Networks that integrate biophysical and socioeconomic inputs and actions based on a utility function. The model is also spatially explicit, with agents making decisions on how to buy/sell, and configure (split) ownerships parcels and is built to link to the ArcGIS software package.
