Welcome to the LUE site

Deer tracks

LUE is software for storing and manipulating large amounts of information for large numbers of objects. This information can optionally have a reference in time and space. For example, LUE can represent collections of wandering animals and their properties, some of which are changing through time, or the elevation of the surface of one or multiple areas. The software is useful, and currently mainly used, in the context of environmental modelling of biological and physical systems, represented by agents and fields, but we make sure that the software is as generic as possible, allowing it to be useful in other contexts as well.


  • LUE is work in progress and not ready for general use. Also, a lot of information is still missing from this site and the software's documentation. Please contact us if you want more information.

LUE is an acronym for "Life, the Universe and Everything". It is pronounced as the French pronounce the name Louis (LU-EE).
