Documentation is never, it seems, suffcient. It seems to be either insufficiently detailed to allow a user to figure out how to do something, or too detailed to allow a user to find what they need, or it is written from a perspective that is too theoretical or too applied, or not close enough to the user's perspective. We, the UrbanSim developers, have probably been guilty of all of the above. So, while we provide a link below to the 'official' user guide, we are enlisting the help of the user community -- that is -- you, to help us create world class, useful documentation, on this site. This site is a wiki, which means once you are registered, you can edit any pages that you have permissions to edit based on the group you are assigned to. We are making the documentation section editable by anyone who wants to help. So if you have something to contribute, please contact us and we'll add you to the Editor group!

The following are snapshots of the documentation generated by UrbanSim developers. We are beginning the process of converting these to the wiki, and encouraging users to help with this process. The wiki documentation is below.
