For the simplicity of spatial modeling in Cellular Automaton (CA) and the complexity of vector spatial expression in the Multi-Agent System (MAS), the concept of grid object as the spatial model of individual behavior simulation was proposed with spatial information, semantic information, and connection relationship of geographic entity. Then, by incorporating the MAS, the method for individual behavior simulation with the Grid Object and Agent Model (GOAM) was demonstrated. Meanwhile, a prototype system including the three subsystems was developed based on the GOAM, and experiments were conducted for two cases in different spatial environments. The prototype system can be used to obtain grid object data with 3D model data, to compute and simulate the behavior of individuals, and to render individuals. The two cases involve goal-driven behavior in both indoor and outdoor environments as examples to evaluate the validity of the GOAM and to provide a reference for building individual behavior simulation with the GOAM in other scenarios.
