A supervisor to monitor multiple simulators McRae, Robert Norman
The problem treated in this thesis is to create a system to monitor multiple interacting simulators. The problem is encountered in an attempt to simulate urban growth. The resulting system has a supervisor which controls all of the components of the system, namely the I/O routines, the graphics routine, the command routines, and the simulators. The main task of the supervisor is to display whichever data values the user desires. This involves executing some simulators, and extracting the data values from the data base. The extraction process first finds an association path between the files in the data base in order to relate the variables being displayed. Then using the association path the physical values are extracted from the data base. The data values are then passed to the graphics routine to be displayed for the user.
