Abstract

Dynamic urban models embody current theories about how urban systems evolve. To explore the consequences of this theory for a particular urban system requires an urban simulation because the theories are necessarily complicated to deal with the nonlinearity and complexity found in urban systems. Making sense of this output is challenging and in this thesis we explore using interactive visualisation and participation in a simulation to help a user interpret this output. Seven different simulation models are developed and explored using this methodology and applied to present day Greater London and South Yorkshire and the historical United States.
