SpaDES: Develop and Run Spatially Explicit Discrete Event Simulation Models

Easily implement a variety of simulation models, with a focus on spatially explicit agent based models. These include raster-based, event-based, and agent-based models. The core simulation components are built upon a discrete event simulation framework that facilitates modularity, and easily enables the user to include additional functionality by running user-built simulation modules. Included are numerous tools to visualize raster and other maps. The suggested package 'fastshp' can be installed with 'install.packages("fastshp", repos="", type="source")'.
