Both MAGIS and MAGIS eXpress REQUIRE licensed Desktop ArcGIS to run the GIS components (It can be started up without those components, but a complete model cannot be built and solved without it).

Currently, MAGIS requires installed KETRON Mathematical Programming Systems software to solve and report solutions. Information about Ketron software can be found on the Ketron website. This link is for informational purposes only. The US Forest Service does not specifically endorse this product.

MAGIS eXpress includes its own heuristic solver. The current version allows the user to run EITHER solver.

Please contact Janet Sullivan for more information about MAGIS or MAGIS eXpress, or for information about the solver.

MAGIS Manual  

 

     Download the installation set and install MAGIS or MAGIS eXpress. Use the Quick Start guide for a tour through the menu system and to get some ideas of the capabilities of the system. Use the Manual for a more detailed instructions on specific tasks. When downloading materials, use the RIGHT-CLICK and choose Save Target As - saving into 'My Download Files' is a good choice.

Once the file is downloaded, navigate to it in Windows Explorer and double-click to run. It should unzip into the c:\ and make a new magis_x folder with several subfolders.

To run MAGIS eXpress, navigate to c:\magis_x\main and double-click on magisX.exe. (you might want to right-click on this file and create a shortcut for it and drag it to the desktop.)

Please contact our help desk for further information and assistance in setting up and running a model. We are here to help!
