This paper describes implementation of a pedestrian simulation environment to carry out an exhaustive analysis of huge-scale pedestrian flow. Our environment consists of the CrowdWalk pedestrian simulator and the PRACTIS simulation controller. CrowdWalk has three pedestrian movement models that are based on a one-dimensional space model. PRACTIS carries out an exhaustive and efficient analysis in a cluster environment to support effective decision-making, enabling pedestrians to be guided according to various criteria. The authors apply CrowdWalk and PRACTIS in a firework festival to verify their guidance planning, and examine some case studies.
