• Generic vector-agents 

    Hammam, Yasser; Moore, Antoni; Whigham, Peter A; Freeman, Claire
    The work reported here has been motivated by the need for a generic spatial model to overcome the limitations of Cellular Automata (CA) regarding the rigid square-cell structure and limited neighbourhood configurations. A ...
  • Habitat mapping on the coastal plains 

    Freeman, Claire
    Less than 5% of the land on New Zealand’s coastal plains is still in predominantly indigenous habitats, falling to less than 2% across much of the Southland and Manawatu coastal plains. The protection, conservation, and ...
  • Hybrid Neoliberalism: Implications for Sustainable Development 

    Baldwin, Claudia; Marshall, Graham; Ross, Helen; Cavaye, Jim; Stephenson, Janet; Carter, Lyn; Freeman, Claire; Curtis, Allan; Syme, Geoff
    Neoliberalism is frequently blamed for challenges in achieving sustainable development; consequently some also question if sustainability is still a useful concept. Neoliberal influence on natural resource management has ...
  • Irregular vector-agent based simulation for land-use modelling 

    Hammam, Yasser; Moore, Antoni; Whigham, Peter A; Freeman, Claire
    Urban structures exhibit complex patterns made of heterogeneous and irregular objects. Few works in the computational urban modelling literature have considered and examined the real geometric boundary of the city’s objects. ...
  • A vector-agent paradigm for dynamic urban modelling 

    Hammam, Yasser; Moore, Antoni; Whigham, Peter A; Freeman, Claire
    In the past, researchers and model developers were restricted by their theoretical knowledge about the city and how it might be simulated as well as constrained by technological limitations. Nevertheless, the simulation ...
