VISUALIZATION OF ENTREPRENEURIAL CELLULAR AUTOMATA 1CECILIA E. NUGRAHENI, 2VANIA NATALI
Abstract: Entrepreneurship has an important role in the economic growth of a country. Therefore, entrepreneurial growth should be maintained and monitored. One way that can be used for this purpose is to model the entrepreneurial growth mathematically. Using this model, simulations can be carried out to find out the actions that need to be considered to maintain the growth of the entrepreneur.This paper presents the development of a simulator program for visualizing the simulation of entrepreneurs' growth in some regions. The mathematical model used to model entrepreneurial growth is Entrepreneurial Cellular Automata (ECA). ECA is an extension of the original Cellular Automata that can be used to model and simulate the entrepreneurial growth based on the entrepreneurial framework proposed by Global Entrepreneurial Monitoring (GEM). In the development of simulators, the Python programming language is used due to its power and ease in processing geographic data, data plotting, and animations.
