Abstract

In this paper we propose an approach to support “what-if” analysis in the context of COA evaluation. Our approach consists in using multiagent geosimulation to simulate the execution of COAs in a Virtual Geographic Environment (VGE) which can change during the simulation, and then allowing the user to explore various assumptions and to analyse their outcomes. We identify the requirements to support this approach and we present how we implement them in the MAGS-COA software. We also illustrate our approach on an example and we present future works.
