This section documents the contents of some of the tables that are generated by the Patchworks model. These tables represent the condition of the simulation within the patchworks program.

These tables are similar to database tables in that they are made up of cells that are arranged by rows and columns. The cells in the tables may contain labels and numeric data, as appropriate for the element. Columns most often represent different data items, and rows often represent features (e.g. polygons) in the dataset.

Some tables allowed cell values to be modified. In this case the changed values will immediately modify the behaviour and results of the simulation model. Cells that allow modification will have a column heading that is shown in a non-italicized font.

Tables can be exported, or used as input to reports in the report writer. Tables can also be manipulated programmatically using the BeanShell scripting language.
