 +====== Dinamica EGO 5 ======
 +
 +===== Overview =====
 +
 +EGO stands for //​Environment for Geoprocessing Objects//. Dinamica EGO consists of a sophisticated platform for environmental modeling with outstanding possibilities for the design from the very simple static spatial model to very complex dynamic ones.  Its main features includes:
 +
 +  * [[lesson_2| Model design as diagrams using data-flow language on a friendly graphical interface]],​
 +  ​
 +  * Nested iterations,
 +
 +  * [[tutorial:​varying_parameters_in_a_simulation|Multi-transitions]],​
 +
 +  * [[lesson_13|Dynamic feedbacks]],​
 +
 +  * [[tutorial:​using_subregions_in_a_simulation_model|Multi-region]],​
 + 
 +  * [[reference_book:​image_virtualization|Multi-scale approach]],
 +
 +  * Decision processes for bifurcating and joining execution pipelines,
 +
 +  * [[functor list|A series of complex spatial algorithms for the analysis and simulation of space-time phenomena]].
 +
 +  * [[submodels|Sub-models]],​
 +
 +  * [[wizard|Model wizards]],
 +
 +  * [[tutorial:​heuristic_calibration_of_models_by_using_genetic_algorithm|Genetic Algorithm for model calibration]] ​
 +
 +  * [[parallelism_on_dinamica|High performance,​ including 64-bit native version, full parallelism using multiprocessor computing architecture,​ smart handling of large raster datasets]]
 +
 +  * [[biodinamica|BioDinamica plug-in for analyses of biodiversity,​ biogeography and macroecology]]  ​
 +
 +The software environment,​ written in C++ and Java, holds a series of algorithms called functors. Each functor performs an operation. We have implemented the most common spatial analysis algorithms available in commercial GIS (Geographic Information System), plus a series of algorithms especially designed for spatial simulations,​ including transition functions and calibration and validation methods.
 +
 +Dinamica EGO functors are sequenced in a graph form to establish a visual data flow. With the help of its graphical interface, one can create models by simply dragging and connecting functors via their ports, each of which represents a connector to a data element, such as a map, a table, a matrix, a mathematical expression, or a constant. Thus, models can be designed as a diagram, whose execution follows a data flow chain. This friendly interface allows for creative design of spatial models that are saved in [[XML Script|XML]] or [[EGO Script|EGO script]] format.
 +
 +In sum, Dinamica-EGO favors simplicity, flexibility and performance,​ optimizing speed and computer resources, such as memory and parallel processing.
