APoLUS Multiple land use simulator now available!

Finally, after a long wait, a prototype version of SIMLANDER that works with multiple land usesĀ  is now available (see screenshot below)

switchboardTo distinguish it from the earlier version that works only for 3 land uses, and to emphasise the addition of the actor characteristics module, the model has been renamed APoLUS (Actor, Policy and Land Use Simulator).

To get the full prototype and user manual, go here

The model code was written by Richard Hewitt for the EU FP7 project COMPLEX, except for the land use allocator, which was written by Maarten van de Meulen, in his free time.

If you are having trouble with the model or if you have any (constructive) comments, please email them to:
