1 Installing the EMU-SDMS

  1. R
    • Download the R programming language from https://cran.r-project.org/
    • Install the R programming language by executing the downloaded file and following the on-screen instructions.
  2. emuR
    • Start up R.
    • Enter install.packages("emuR") after the > prompt to install the package. (You will only need to repeat this if package updates become available.)
    • As the wrassp package is a dependency of the emuR package, it does not have to be installed separately.
  3. EMU-webApp (prerequisite)
    • The only thing needed to use the EMU-webApp is a current HTML5 compatible browser (Chrome/Firefox/Safari/Opera/…). However, as most of the development and testing is done using Chrome we recommend using it, as it is by far the best tested browser.
