SAGA Is A Geographic Information System (GIS)

SAGA by Dept. of Physical Geography  - short hand for " System for  Automated  Geoscientific  Analyses" - is a free, hybrid, cross-platform GIS software. The heart of SAGA 2.0.6_win32 is it`s  C++  and thus object oriented  Application Programming Interface  (API), providing data object definitions and computational methods for  raster,   vector  and  tabular data. As a normal user, you will not get into touch with the API. But as an interested scientist or coder you will soon discover it`s great flexibility.
As user, you will most likely focus on using the steady growing availability of geoscientific methods. These are implemented in various SAGA [saga2.0.6_win32.exe] modules which are bundled in so-called  module libraries. These module libraries are accessible to you in different ways: By a  Graphical User Interface  (SAGA - 4.7MB  GUI) or by one of the scripting methods. The scripting methods include a  Command Line Interface  (SAGA 2.0.6_win32 CMD) which allows for batch/bash scripting (i. e. coupling of different modules to automate tasks) and apython interface  which gives you also direct access to the SAGA API and is thus more flexible.
The  modularity of SAGA, i. e. the strict division of geoscientific methods (SAGA modules) and basic computational methods (SAGA API) allows it easily to extend SAGA`s functionality without getting into touch with core development. As scientific user, you do not even need to compile SAGA yourself to develop own modules satisfying your needs.
The  GUI  is the most comfortable way of using SAGA: You can load raster, vector and tabular data and visualize them in map views, 3D views, diagrams, scatterplots, etc. The GUI provides great flexibility regarding e. g. color tables, layering of datasets and display of attributes. You have full access to all SAGA modules to process your data and examine the results. This includes a lot of scientific methods you will miss in other GIS applications.
In case you have to automate a special task, just use one of the  scripting methods  provided. If you are missing a method in SAGA, just go ahead and  build your own module. This may sound more complicated than it is - just have a look at the modules of the  Lectures - Introducing Module Programming  module library to get a clue on how to do so. You will be surprised that even the C++ code reads more or less like a scripting language.
