  • GroIMP modelling platform: Introduction and applications

    Speaker: Katarina Smolenova

    Date and place: 07/11/2013 at 10am in room 127 of galera building

    Abstract: GroIMP is an open-source 3D-modelling platform, which has been designed for the purpose of creating functional-structural plant models. The modelling language of GroIMP, the language XL, combines the benefits of L-systems and the Java programming language. It allows to describe the plant ...
