In the FEARLUS (Framework for the Evaluation and Assessment of Regional Land Use Scenarios) project, we have developed a methodology for experimenting with our agent-based model of land use change. In a collaboration with the University of Aberdeen (one of the ESRC’s e-Social Science Initiative Pilot Demonstrator Projects), we have developed an ontology for this methodology, and enabled access to it via the Semantic Grid (Pignotti et al., 2005). Here, we present the ontology, showing how it enhances the rigour of reported outputs from agent-based models with stochastic elements, and briefly describe how the ontology and its realisation on the Grid contributes further to developing good science (Moss, 2004; Moss & Edmonds, 2004) in the area of Agent-Based Social Simulation.
