Major new versions of SyncroSim and ST-Sim, including R package and Lite version, available for free download

SyncroSim Version 2, including the new rsyncrosim package for R, is now available for free download. This new version of SyncroSim represents a major milestone in the development of our scenario-based, stochastic modeling toolkit. With the release of Version 2, it is now possible to develop of any number of plug-in “modules” for SyncroSim – such as our flagship ST-Sim module for developing state-and-transition simulation models of landscape change – each representing one or more interconnected processes in a modeling project. Key new features of the SyncroSim software framework include: (1) the ability to connect multiple simulation models; (2) to script a modeling workflow from start to finish in programming languages such as R and Python; (3) to publish models for use by a non-technical audience using the new SyncroSim Lite user interface.
