Modeling Smoking Dynamics

I know I’ve been behind in posting updates since the winter, but I’m slowly (but surely) making up for it. First, a spatial agent-based model I made for a grad course is up at my Github, including some documentation and additional content.

A preview is up at MapSee, so check it out! I’ve gone as far as I can with it for now, but would love to see someone pick it up down the road.
