This paper discusses the anlysis of data-sets from observations made at the Duisburg Love Parade in 2010 and the large-scale crowd situation that ended in fatalities due to the development of crush conditions. This event is a useful case study of large crowd circulation based on the material that was made publically available by the organisers and attendees. The resultant data-set has been used to configure the buildingEXODUS model to approximate the original incident in order to verify both the model's performance and the underlying scenario assumptions; i.e. whether buildingEXODUS can reliably represent agent actions, the conditions that develop and the impact of these developments.
