VISUALIZATION OF FOLKTALES ON A MAP BY COUPLING DYNAMIC DEVS SIMULATION WITHIN GOOGLE EARTH

Jean-François Santucci, Laurent Capocchi

Abstract

This paper deals with dynamic visualization of folktales on a map. The visualization is performed using a coupling of dynamic simulation with the google earth API. The simulation is based on the DEVS (Discrete EVent system Specification) formalism. We have defined a set of basic models to perform visualization of folktales using a software framework called DEVSimPy. DEVSimPy is a framework dedicated to DEVS modeling and simulation of complex systems. We also present in this paper a validation of the developed basic models based on folktales coming from the Corsican mythology.
