NetLogo & R

NetLogo is a great tool for agent-based modeling of complex dynamic systems. It is commonly used in a number of disciplines including behavioral ecology and evolutionary biology, sociology and epidemiology. There are a number of ways to export data from simulations run in Netlogo. One especially useful method is to use the RNetLogo R package. This packages allows you to interface directly with NetLogo from R. Launching models, altering model settings and exporting data.

The following video and code is a tutorial of how to use the RNetLogo package.
