Metapackage for implementing a variety of event-based models, with a focus on spatially explicit models. These include raster-based, event-based, and agent-based models. The core simulation components (provided by
SpaDES.core) are built upon a discrete event simulation (DES) framework that facilitates modularity, and easily enables the user to include additional functionality by running user-built simulation modules (see also
SpaDES.tools). Included are numerous tools to visualize rasters and other maps (via
quickPlot), and caching methods for reproducible simulations (via
reproducible). Additional functionality is provided by the
SpaDES metapackage: http://SpaDES.PredictiveEcology.org
SpaDES ecosystem packages:
Predictive Ecology Blog: http://predictiveecology.org/

Examples for R-savvy users:
Copy the linked
.Rmd file to your computer. Open it with a text editor or in RStudio, and run all chunks in R. It is not intended to be knitted; knitting will only output the script.
Install development libraries: building packages from source requires the appropriate development libraries for your operating system.
Windows: install Rtools.
macOS: install Xcode commandline tools from the terminal:
Debian/Ubuntu Linux: ensure
r-base-dev is installed.
See here for more details.
Install suggested packages: the
fastshp package can be installed with:
install.packages("fastshp", repos = "https://rforge.net", type = "source")
Install from CRAN:

SpaDES metapackage simply loads a number of other packages from the
SpaDES ecosystem. Bug reports should be reported to the specific package in question rather than the metapackage. Contact us via the package’s GitHub site:
