Next Patch Example

If you download the NetLogo application, this model is included. You can also Try running it in NetLogo Web

WHAT IS IT?

This code example demonstrates how to find out what patch a turtle would cross into next if it were to move forward continuously.

Note that NetLogo doesn't actually have continuous motion; turtles can only move by "jumping" a finite amount. So it's rare that you need the code in this code example; normally a turtle can just use the patch-ahead primitive to find out where it would land if it jumped a certain distance.

See the Code tab for further commentary.
