Session Abstract

Dinamica EGO is a sophisticated platform for environmental modeling with outstanding possibilities for the design of complex dynamic models. It is available at no cost and provides a user-friendly graphical interface suitable for modelers of all levels. Models can include nested iterations, dynamic feedbacks, cellular automata, and many other complex spatial algorithms. In this one-day training session, we will introduce Dinamica EGO, highlighting the new features of the latest version, which has an improved graphical interface. The training session will comprise an overview of the interface, examples ranging from simple to complex models, hands-on exercises, tricks and tips, and an introduction to the tools to support end-users such as Dinamica Wizard and Map Viewer. All topics will be covered in a practical way in order to allow participants to start creating their own models promptly. To attend the session, participants are expected to bring their own laptops with Dinamica EGO 4 already installed (see requirements and download the freeware at

The training session will cover the following topics: - Introduction to Dinamica: computational requirements, options, documentation - Dinamica EGO 4 interface: libraries, sketch, tabs, submodels, tracking model issues - Creating a model using map algebra, feedback loops and regions - Building submodels and new operators including R code encapsulation - Organizing and documenting your model: tips and tricks for a transparent model - Presenting your model and outputs: Dinamica Map Viewer, Wizard and Movie Maker.
