This chapter presents the most recent developments in an on-going programme of work towards a realistic agent-based model of urban dynamics. The focus of the chapter is on the development of a framework for calibrating an agent-based model of urban dynamics using novel data from the Twitter social media service. In particular, we discuss initial attempts to elucidate information about peoples' daily spatio-temporal behaviour and how such insight can be used for the bene�t of agent-based models. The ultimate aim of the modelling work is to better understand the spatio- temporal movement patterns within the city.
