SUMMARY

Dinamica EGO is a model platform that users can build spatially explicit environmental process models including LULC change model. 

It does not provide fixed model structure for scenario mapping. Instead, it provides necessary tools and functions for LULC change modeling, which allows users full flexibility to design their own model. 

If the user prefers to use existing model structure, a tutorial of building a LULC change simulation model is available at http://goo.gl/0i9JTJ, which simulates future LULC change based on historical trend and relations with spatial factors captured by weight of evidence. 

 

INPUT - REQUIRED Flexible, depends on user-defined model structure. The typical model (as introduced in the tutorial) requires current and historical LULC rasters, and spatial factors like roads.
INPUT - OPTIONAL Various spatial factors
OUTPUT Simulated LULC rasters
HOW ARE SCENARIOS DECIDED?

Depends on user-defined models.The typical model calculates transition matrix based on historical trend

The typical model calculates transition matrix based on historical trend, and generates transition probability map using the Weight of Evidence method.

COST Free
