Begin description: Jump to a random unoccupied location in the specified region. End description
Jump to unoccupied
Begin NetLogo code:
substitute-text-area-for min-x min-pxcor substitute-text-area-for max-x max-pxcor substitute-text-area-for min-y min-pycor substitute-text-area-for max-y max-pycor let unoccupied-location random-unoccupied-location (min-x) (max-x) (min-y) (max-y) set my-x first unoccupied-location set my-y second unoccupied-location
End NetLogo code
You can change the contents of the boxes to specify a region other than the whole environment.
This calls random-unoccupied-location which reports the location of a random unoccupied patch. The location is then used to set the values of xcor and ycor.
Jump to a random location will go to any location regardless of whether it is occupied. Jump to location on a circle places agents in a circle. Place a set of agents in a rectangular grid places agents to fill a rectangle. Lay out a set of agents where the agents repel each other and the links between them act like springs attempts to find good locations for agents based upon their links with other agents. There are many movement behaviours in the main library.
Jump to unoccupied location was implemented by Ken Kahn.
