GeoSchelling Model (Polygons)#
This is a geoversion of a simplified Schelling example. For the original implementation details please see the Mesa Schelling examples.
Instead of an abstract grid space, we represent the space using NUTS-2 regions to create the GeoSpace in the model.
NUTS-2 regions are the GeoAgents. The neighbors of a polygon are considered those polygons that touch its border (i.e., edge neighbours). During the running of the model, a polygon queries the colors of the surrounding polygon and if the ratio falls below a certain threshold (e.g., 40% of the same color), the agent moves to an uncolored polygon.
How to Run#
To run the model interactively, run
mesa runserver in this directory. e.g.
Then open your browser to http://127.0.0.1:8521/ and press
