Abstract

Our project deals with the reuse of existent urban models into an interconnection schema. An urban model is a specialised tool for simulating or estimating phenomena about the city. Using a specific technique of encapsulation, with a semi-automatic generation of communication drivers, the proposed environment offers a homogeneous view of the urban models, which may be used into a distributed environment. In this paper, we present the global distributed architecture, created with Java, and the chosen representation of the interconnection schema, explaining how this particular approach is well dedicated to manage the distributed urban models. This paper shows the advantage offered by the XML syntax to represent meta-data and specific data, and by a strong hierarchical management.
