London1940.org simulates 100 miles by 100 miles of the area around the South East of England including London in 1940.
The simulation is developed from the ApeSDK's urban simulation.
Interpreted map data coming from the Ordinance Survey maps of 1940 from the National Library of Scotland which thankfully is free to use for this kind of work. It represents very varied map data including buildings, rail, road, waterways, and orchards.

We are very close to getting the data-set into an agent simulation and are looking for agent modellers who are interested in this problem space.
And Folkestone, Kent.
It is projected another location may be simulated such as Canterbury, Southend-on-Sea and Maidstone before the broader simulation of London is undertaken.
