NEighborhood MOdeling (NEMO) provides transparent parallelism to develop parallel spatial data processing. It addresses the following parallel issues: architecture and machine independence; communication bottlenecks; data visualization; casualty errors; load balancing; and data coherence. NEMO is capable of processing three types of time consuming raster neighborhood models: cellular automata; propagation; and neighborhood analysis. NEMO achieves this flexibility by including five components to its design: the three application drivers such as the cellular automata driver, propagation driver, and neighborhood analysis automata driver; and the display manager and raster database manager.
