It abbreviation for System for automated Geoscientific where it is Geographic Information System use for editing spatial data for free and developed from volunteers.
Saga GIS is software and bunch of tools to provide researcher and specialist an easy prepared platform to perform special methods required to analyze these piece of data by application interface processes.
Saga GIS has a set of fast growing methods tools organized into libraries categorized into proposed module and to mention some of the standard categories:
File access: interfaces to various table, vector, image and grid file formats, including shapefiles, Esri grids (ASCII and binary), and many grid file formats supported by the Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL)
Filter for grids, Gridding: interpolation from vector data, Geostatistics, Grid calculator: combine grids through user defined functions, Grid discretisation: skeletonisation, segmentation, Grid tools: merging, resampling, gap filling, Image classification, Projections: various coordinate transformations for vector and grid data, Simulation of dynamic processes: TOPMODEL, nitrogen distributions, erosion, landscape development, Terrain analysis: geomorphometric calculations such as slope, Vector tools: polygon intersection, contour lines from grid.
Working with Saga GIS very easy and automatic where you can see a tree of tools in user interface organized into groups ready for use from import and export to editing, analyzing, perform some methods on them then make simulation processes with environment easy to use and with online tutorial for easy learning come from the developers, specialist, and professional users.
