In this paper we explore the integration among geographical information systems (GIS) and agent based simulation tools. An agent-based geographical information system (ABGIS) could be characterized as a kind of system integrating features commonly found in geographical information system with the features of agent-based simulation tools. ABGIS would give to scientists and researches, not necessarily computer experts, access to powerful simulation tools and an environment that is an excellent metaphor to represent our spatio-temporal world. With ABGIS we could explore the dynamics of spatiotemporal systems, and particularly but not exclusively, complex systems.
