Least cost path mobility v1.1.0

This model tries to mimic human behavior in a topographical environment. It aims to go beyond the GIS approach to least-cost path that requires perfect knowledge of the whole environment to choose the best path between two points. This model is different in that the agent does not have a perfect knowledge of the whole surface, but rather evaluates the best path locally, at each step, thus mimicking imperfect human behavior more accurately. It relies on the work by Naismith (1892, in Aitken 1977) and Langmuir (1984) on walking time expenditure in rugged environments. Their walking time values are used to calculate the agent’s travel time. **IMPORTANT: After downloading the model folder, move the LCP_maps folder from the "data" folder to the "code" folder so that the model can find it.**
