Research on Regional Logistics Spatial Evolution Based on Geographic Simulation System
To explore development and evolution mechanism of regional logistics system, analyzed complex regional logistics system consists of certain types of entities such as logistics supply sides, logistics demand sides, the government and its professional management departments, it is mainly studied that the physical flow process between logistics supply side logistics demand side and the corresponding size, structure and layout evolution and optimization process between and within the regional logistics. Moreover, on the basis, combined with Multi-Agent System (MAS), Cellular Automata (CA), and Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to build geographic simulation system (GSS), then, build regional logistics space evolution model based on GSS, in addition, analyze the agents, environmental conditions and their agent behavioral strategies of the model in order to analyze the evolution mechanism of regional logistics system. At last, through empirical analysis demonstrates the model in this paper is reasonable and also can offer the reference to region logistics planning and operation.
