R package gwfa : Geographically Weighted Fractal Analysis (GWFA).

This package enables the calculation of the local fractal dimension of a set of points. The method mixes the Sandbox multifractal algorithm and the Geographically Weighted Regression. It can be used to discriminate built patterns within a city, a region, or a whole country. Contact : F. Sémécurbe

R package wmlf: multifractal analysis of images using wavelet leaders.

Developed by François Sémécurbe and Stéphane Roux on the basis of the method proposed by Herwig Wendt, Stéphane Roux, Stéphane Jaffard, and Patrice Abry, 2009, Wavelet leaders and bootstrap for multifractal analysis of images. Signal Processing 6 (89), pp. 1100-1114. Contact: F. Sémécurbe, C. Tannier

Spatial simulation

ArtiScales: spatial simulation platform that supports the integration of regional planning policies and local design rules

Contacts : M. Colomb et C. Tannier (ThéMA), J. Perret (IGN-LaSTIG)

Mobisimsimulation platform for the prospective study of the impact of daily and residential mobility on the urban development, sprawl and planning of French and European agglomerations

Developed since 2007 under two PREDIT contracts. Systems: any system supporting Java. Contact: JP. Antoni, C. Tannier, G. Vuidel

Fractalopolis: multifractal urban planning

Fractalopolis is dedicated to the design of multifractal urban or regional development plans that adhere to five planning principles: hierarchical polycentric urban development; transit-oriented development; locally dense residential development; penetration of green areas into built-up areas across several nested scales; preservation of large interconnected networks of natural and green areas having various sizes. Systems: any system supporting Java. License: GPL. Contact: C. Tannier, P. Frankhauser, G. Vuidel

LucSim (Land Use Cellular automata Simulation): simulation software for urban development integrating three models: cellular automata, potential model and Markov chain.

System: any system supporting Java. License: GPL. Contact: JP. Antoni, G. Vuidel

Mup-City (Multi-scale urban planning for a sustainable city)

Developed since 2008 under two PREDIT contracts, MUP-City can be used to create fractal and non fractal residential development scenarios integrating constraints of accessibility to shops, services, open spaces and proximity constraints with the existing road networks. Systems: any system supporting Java. License: GPL. Contact: C. Tannier, G. Vuidel

S-Ghost: simulation of the morphogenesis of cities by cellular automata integrating econometric modelling of individual behaviour.

Developed since 2007 under ANR ECDESUP project. System: any system supporting Java. License: GPL. Contact: G. Vuidel

SimFeodal: Agent-based modelling to better understand the evolution of rural settlement patterns in North-Western Europe during the Middle Ages (800 CE to 1200 CE).

The model enables exploring the combined effects of social and demographic changes on the concentration and hierarchy of rural settlement patterns. It simulates the emergence of enduring population clusters located around castles and parish churches. Over time, population clusters (hamlets, villages, small towns) become more numerous; many of them grow (i. e. their number of peasant households increases) but some clusters grow more than others.
