Project GeoSim

Project GeoSim is a joint research project of the Departments of Computer Science and Geography at Virginia Tech.

Project GeoSim Modules

The original Project GeoSim was created in the early 1990s, written for Microsoft Windows. We re-wrote a number of the modules as Java Applets in the late 1990's. At this time, Java Applets are quickly becoming unsupportable. We rewrote the IntlPop module with HTML5/JavaScript in 2014. Therefore, the only GeoSim module that is current supported is IntlPop 3.0. The following information about the old GeoSim modules is rather old. We offer this material as-is, but we don't expect it to be reliable.
International Population (IntlPop) and Human Population (HumPop)
IntlPop 3.0 is a population simulation program. HumPop is a multimedia tutorial program.
Migration Modeling (MigModel)
MigModel is a migration modeling and simulation program.
Mental Maps (MMap)
MMap is a geography quiz program.
Congressional Apportionment (MigPol)
MigPol simulates the effects of population shifts on the U.S. House of Representatives.
Sense of Place (SnsPlace)
SnsPlace focuses on the characteristics of U.S. counties and states.
The original "C" versions of hte Project GeoSim simulations were developed with the GeoSim Interface Library (GIL).
