ALMaSS - The Animal, Landscape and Man Simulation System Wiki
Currently the main ALMaSS web page is www.almass.dk. Please refer to this site for examples and general ALMaSS information (at least until this Wiki is developed). Hopefully this process will be rapid - please feel free to contribute.
ODdox documentation for ALMaSS is available both from this site as a downloadable .zip file from 'Docs' and as html at www.almass.dk under Documentation.
ODdox documentation is a hybrid between the ODD protocol for describing IBMs and Doxygen ( http://www.doxygen.org ) a standard software tool designed to increase the accessibility of program code. In ODdox documentation provides a set of html documents generated by Doxygen whcih form cross-linked documentation of all classes, methods and variables used in a progam code. This allows the user to browse through classes and see the inter-relationships in the code. At the lowest level the code is presented together with a brief description of what it does, and including the comments placed inside the code itself. The ODdox thus provides a powerful way of documentating IBMs and allowing others to choose to see precisely what has been done or to get an overview quickly without the details. For information on ODdox see: Topping, C.J., Høye, T.T., Olesen, C.R. 2010 Opening the Black Box – Development, Testing and Documentation of a Mechanistically Rich Agent-Based Model.
