File system layout and configuration
Simtrap can be installed and maintained under a single root directory,
or with file systems distributed across different partitions and disk within a
single NFS file system. A single-site system, with a small set of maps and a
single satellite image will occupy around 100 MB of disk space; for larger
areas, multiple sites, several satellite images and DEM coverage as well as
scanned background maps, this can quickly approach 1 GB of disk space
assume a root directory $SIMTRAP.
This directory would then contain:
drwxrwxr-x 10 user ess 512 Jul 30 09:15 ../
-rw-rw-r-- 1 user ess 897 Mar 16 09:55 .aca_licenses
drwxrwxr-x 4 user ess 512 May 6 1998 bin/

drwxrwxr-x 2 user ess 512 Apr 9 15:44 logs/
drwxrwxr-x 2 user ess 512 Jul 29 14:59 output/
Ssun5 is the executable programme.
The CONFIG file controls the location of all other files by
specifying the location of the data and defaults directories.
The Doc directory contains release notes, READ_ME files etc., and the
output directory contains temporary output and scratch files of the
bin contains architecture specific subdirectories (e.g., sun5, ibm,
hp, lnx with auxiliary programs such as convert, used
for the conversion of XWinDumps into GIF files (see also:
Hardcopy output of maps and model results.
log contains a set of log files that are created at startup and
during systems operation that can be used for diagnostic purposes.
plot contains the output from the plot option for the model
output display pages.
WARNING: files in this directory are not removed
automatically; they will keep accumulating everytime the plot function is used.
The user is responsible for their maintenance and eventual removal.
data is the root of the data directories.
It contains the following subdirectories and files:

fma contains all the FMA-Files of the scenarios.
objects contains the following subdirectories:
drwxrwxr-x 2 franz aca 512 Aug 6 12:09 scenarios/
drwxrwxr-x 7 franz aca 512 Jun 10 13:47 snet/
scenarios contains files which describe an entire Simtrap
senario per file.
snet contains the basic Dynemo-scenarios and files.
