An Overview of ST-Sim
Once you install ST-Sim you will be able to create ST-Sim Libraries.
These Libraries have ST-Sim Properties which let you describe the various states of a landscape and how that landscape is affected by Transition pathways associated with one or more of those states.
The Properties for configuring the spatial inputs are particularly rich. For example, you can define separate multipliers for slope, direction, and cell adjacency in a single Scenario.
The Pathway Diagram
To make this easier, ST-Sim offers a special editor called the Pathway Diagram. Using the Pathway Diagram you can visually organize the State Classes for each Stratum in your landscape and individually configure the transitions between those states.
After running an ST-Sim Scenario, you can analyze the results in depth:
- The SyncroSim Chart Window contains all the most important ST-Sim output variables.
- The SyncroSim Map Window shows you all the maps generated by your spatially explict runs.
- Custom Reports help you analyze your model's tabular output in a variety of ways.
