The desire to understand our world and foresee its future is embedded deeply in the human mind. Starting from the 1960s, our forecasts are based on computer simulations. New computing facilities enforce the development of novel methods of scientific inquiry and enable the investigation of problems that only a decade ago were considered overcomplicated.

Geosimulation has recently emerged at the intersection of Geographic Information Science, Complex Systems Theory and Computer Science. Geosimulation aims at understanding the dynamics of complex human-driven spatial systems through the use of spatially explicit computer simulation. The approaches and tools for validating Geosimulation models are especially important for understanding their complex and spatially heterogeneous outcomes. The Ebook presents the recent conceptual and methodological advances achieved in the field. It should be very useful for scientists and graduate students working
