The EcoBuilder and Digital Ecosystem Modelling

This is an introduction to the Ecobuilder, a tool for the creation of Digital Ecosystem Models (DEMs) via Java API or via GUI developed by Anna-Grit Eggers with the University of Goettingen (Germany). The DEM is a means to express the network of dependencies, and interactions of entities in digital ecosystems. The tool has been developed within PERICLES, a four-year Integrated Project (2013-2017) funded by the European Union under its Seventh Framework Programme (ICT Call 9).

The EcoBuilder is available under Apache v.2 Open Source license at this GitHub page:
