EMDS desktop is a system which is free to use for all users. EMDS leverages the engines of NetWeaver, Criterium DecisionPlus, VisiRule, and SMILE. The vendors and products are discussed in more detail on our "About Us" page.
EMDS contains a runtime version of each engine, but to produce the models, you will need to download and purchase a license from the specific vendor selected*.
After the EMDS downloads are links to an evaluation copy of these vendor's products.
The EMDS Consortium is here to support you. We have over 80 years of combined experience with geographic and scientific modeling, and designing creative and innovative solutions. We offer EMDS and consulting services, including modeling training, to our customers. Please use the form on the "About Us" page to reach out to us, and a representative will get back to you quickly.
* Please note that if you are an employee of the federal government, contact Keith Reynolds of the USDA Forest Service about existing site licenses for the product.
