Abstract: We discuss a number of new and upcoming programs in NEMO software toolkit that can be used to fit particle distributions (e.g. from N-body simulations, but also grid based simulations) to observations. Non-linear fitting, especially those with many complex parameters, present themselves with many problems. Genetic programming is one such solution. The fitting programs in this paper are mainly applicable to analyzing velocity fields of individual galaxies and interacting galaxies, and apply new techniques such as genetic programming. We also discuss how these packages can be of use to a theory component in a Virtual Observatory.
