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.
|FORM||Native Windows 64-bit application (written in C & Java), with Graphical User Interface|
|CAN I ALTER THE MODEL?||No, source code not open.|
|REQUIRE GIS TOOL TO RUN THE MODEL?||No|
