L-Py: L-Systems in Python

(1, 2) , (1, 2)


Lindenmayer-systems were conceived as a mathematical framework for modeling growth of plants. In this paper, we present L-Py, a simulation package that mixes L-systems construction with the Python high-level modeling language. In addition to this software module, an integrated visual development environment has been developed that facilitates the creation of plant models. In particular, easy to use optimization tools have been integrated. Thanks to Python and its modular approach, this framework makes it possible to integrate a variety of tools defined in different modeling context, in particular tools from the OpenAlea platform [Pradal08]. Additionally, it can be integrated as a simple growth simulation module into more complex computational pipelines.
