As a technologist, with a strong background in computer information systems, I want to develop a deeper understanding of using agent-based modeling. This will lead towards the review of various model and system simulation types. I am curious to identify best practices in combining agent-based models to geospatial predictive models to derive relevant data. If I am successful, I hope this information leads to new ways to potentially track and predict ocean currents and temperatures around the Hawaiian archipelago.
