    Hi everyone,
    I am working with colleagues at UW-Madison who have done heaps of work in Telsa but would like to experiment with St-Sim. How do you migrate from Telsa to St-Sim.

    Apologies if this is out in the forum already. I have a hunch I could probably glean the answers, but well, I do not quite have the brainpower.



    Hi Randy,


    This is a good question that has not been asked in the forum. At the moment there is no autmoated way of migrating from TELSA to ST-Sim but is has been done by researchers at NCSU. There are two possible approaches that you could use:


    If they still have the pathways in VDDT format, they can go through the tutorial for going from VDDT to Path to ST-Sim (see and Then reconfigure the spatially explicit settings in the model.


    If you have knowledge of the TELSA database and SQL then you can design queries that export the data to a suitable format that can be imported to ST-Sim using the excel import templates for each model property.


    In either case you will also need to create raster based spatial model inputs rather than vector based ones.

    I would be happy to help with specifics if you or your colleagues want to give me a call.
