Resources for download

Download our computer models, models, metrics and other resources we produce

Please feel free to send us an email requesting more information, the papers and the models and metrics; we are more than happy to exchange ideas and cooperate with you. 


CID-USST – Creative cities and industries (http://www.landecon.cam.ac.uk/research/lisa/cid-usst/view). Also, please download netlogo programming language (http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/) into your computer in order to run our model.

You will see that it is easy to use: once you have downloaded netolog, just open our CID-USST model, click buttons of 'setup' and 'go' and you will see firms and workers moving in our virtual city. If you want to change the parameters and run again the model, you can compare multiple simulations)
