A fundamental building block of any state-and-transition model is the State Class.
Creating a State Class
Step 1 - Create a Class and a Subclass
In ST-Sim, each State Class is defined by a unique combination of Class and Subclass values. So, to create a State Class you must first create at least one record in both the Class and Subclass Properties.
Step 2 - Create the State Class
Once you have created at least one Class and Subclass you are ready to create a State Class. To create a State Class, select a Class and a Subclass from the Class and Subclass combo boxes. You can also specify Name for your State Class, but if you leave this column blank a custom name will be generated for you.
The following additional columns are available from the Context Menu.
|ID||The ID for the State Class when running a spatially explicit simulation.|
|Color||The legend color for the State Class when displaying Spatial Maps.|
|Map Legend||The map legend for the State Class when displaying Spatial Maps.|
|Description||A description of the State Class.|
The ID values for a State Class must correspond to the ID values for the State Class raster defined in the Spatial Initial Conditions Property.
