space --  tools for visualizing objects in various spaces


The Swarm Space library is the beginnings of a library to assist in building environments for interacting agents. In general, environments can be just as varied as the agents themselves (in one view, the environment itself is simply another agent). However, many simulations have similar types of environments that can be helpfully supported by generic code.

The current space library only addresses simple kinds of discretized 2d space. Improvement is planned in the future: see the todo list for ideas. Briefly, coordinates need to be elevated to the status of objects, which should hopefully allow spaces of different scales and boundary conditions to interact through a common reference system. In addition, other types of spaces are desired: continuous coordinates, other dimensions, arbitrary graphs, etc.
