Create a spatial model¶
Spatial structure is an important component in many models of disease. CMS offers an easy way to
specify geographic compartments. The syntax for creating a locale is
(locale name), and all
Spatial simulation methods support this feature.
Species must be specified with the name of the locale where it belongs in the following format:
species_name::locale_name. The below example illustrates how locales and species are created for
a spatial simulation.
(locale site-1) (set-locale site-1) (species A::1 1000) (locale site-2) (set-locale site-2) (species A::2 1000) (reaction A1->A2 (A::1) (A::2) (* D A::1)) (reaction A2->A1 (A::2) (A::1) (* D A::2))
