stppSim: Spatiotemporal Point Patterns Simulation

Generates artificial spatiotemporal (ST) point patterns through the integration of microsimulation (Holm, E., (2017)<doi:10.1002/9781118786352.wbieg0320>) and agent-based models (Bonabeau, E., (2002)<doi:10.1073/pnas.082080899>). Allows a user to define the behaviours of a set of 'walkers' (agents, objects, persons, etc.) whose interactions with the spatial (landscape) (Quaglietta, L. and Porto, M., (2019)<doi:10.1186/s40462-019-0154-8>) and the temporal domains produce new point events. The resulting ST patterns from the point cloud can be measured and utilized for spatial and/or temporal model testings and evaluations. Application: With increasingly limited availability of fine-grained spatially and temporally stamped point data, the package provides an alternative source of data for a wide range of research in social and life sciences.
