Qualitatively correct bintrees: an efficient representation of qualitative spatial information

We outline our work on using bintrees as an efficient representation for qualitative information about spatial objects. Our approach represents each spatial object as a bintree satisfying the exact same qualitative relationships to other bintree …

Using word embeddings to generate data-driven human agent decision-making from natural language

Generating replicable and empirically valid models of human decision-making is crucial for the scientific accuracy and reproducibility of agent-based models. A two-fold challenge in developing models of decision-making is a lack of high resolution …


Multi-skill aware task assignment in real-time spatial crowdsourcing

With the development of mobile Internet and the prevalence of sharing economy, spatial crowdsourcing (SC) is becoming more and more popular and attracts attention from both academia and industry. A fundamental issue in SC is assigning tasks to …


Guest editorial for spatial agent-based models: current practices and future trends


FeaturEyeTrack: automatic matching of eye tracking data with map features on interactive maps

Map reading is a visual task that can strongly vary between individuals and maps of different characteristics. Aspects such as where, when, how long, and in which sequence information on a map is looked at can reveal valuable insights for both the …
