Abstract : GNOME II continues the model elicitation work of GNOME and implements the established methods and exploration techniques into the current visualization environment for NOEM. From a modeling standpoint, we extract knowledge from the relationships and structure of the Nation Building simulation model to answer the questions: what does an input parameter affect?, how much of an effect exists?, and how can I achieve a certain state? From a software standpoint, we provide additional interface and visualization components to aid the user in navigating a nation-building model, understanding the key relationships, and retrieve suggested inputs and outputs of interest based on either what they can modify or what they are trying to affect within the model.
