EstimateS. Statistical estimation of species richness and shared species from samples

EstimateS is a free software application for Windows and Macintosh operating systems that computes a variety of biodiversity functions, estimators, and indices based on biotic sampling data. Some features require species relative abundance data, others only species presence/absence data.


FloraMap is a software linked to agroclimatic and other databases able to showing the most likely distribution of wild species in nature.


A GBIF demonstration project which allows users to query the GBIF cache using names obtained through the Catalogue of life and to map and analyse the resultant record set. The Survey Gap Analysis (SGA) tool helps to design a biodiversity survey that will best complement the existing survey effort by identifying those areas least well surveyed in terms of environmental conditions. The Species Richness Assessment (SRA) tool provide an estimate of the number of species in an area; and to gain insight into the adequacy of sampling based on abundance distributions for those species.

GeoDa. An Introduction to Spatial Data Analysis

GeoDa is the latest incarnation in a long line of software tools designed to implement techniques for exploratory spatial data analysis on lattice data (points and polygons). The free program provides a user friendly and graphical interface to methods of descriptive spatial data analysis, such as spatial autocorrelation statistics, as well as basic spatial regression functionality.


GPSBabel is a converter program aimed at GPS systems. It can convert files to and from a large number of free and proprietary formats, such as KML (Google Earth) , csv, GPX, ...



GPSPhotoLinker can be used to save location and GPS position data to a photo. The latitude and longitude recorded by your GPS unit while you were taking photos can be linked, and saved, to the photos. GPSPhotoLinker automatically enters the city, state and country into the metadata.


gvSIG is a tool oriented to manage geographic information. It is characterized by a user-friendly interface, with a quick access to the most usual raster and vector formats. In the same view it includes local as well as remote data through a WMS, WCS or WFS source. 


This collection management software is made for botanical collections. It comes with a user friendly interface and many strong features. It has a long history of many stable version releases, adding new features steadily. It has an integrated system using Microsoft word for designing labels with or without bar-codes. It has an option to export data to Internet friendly formats including ASP web pages, TSA, REMIB, and Darwin Core version 2. It allows for management of loans and requests, and includes a geo-referencing system.


HyperNiche is a software for nonparametric regression, providing a flexible tool for multiplicative habitat modelling, habitat models where the predictors are combined multiplicatively rather than additively.



JabRef is an open source bibliography reference manager. The native file format used by JabRef is BibTeX, the standard LaTeX bibliography format. JabRef runs on the Java VM (version 1.4.2 or greater), and should work equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.


JUICE Determine species response curves on environmental gradients, allowing the determination of species optimum and also niche width (tolerance), and identifying species as generalist or specialist.

Linnaeus II


Linnaeus II is an innovative multifunctional research tool for systematists and biodiversity researchers, facilitating biodiversity documentation and species identification.

Linnaeus II was developed by ETI BioInformatics at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The software package, available for both Windows and Mac OS X, allows the creation of taxonomic databases, optimizes the construction of easy-to-use identification keys, expedites the display and comparison of distribution patterns, and promotes the use of taxonomic data for biodiversity studies.

The software can also be used to publish completed information systems on CD-ROM / DVD-ROM or make them available on the Web.

LoLA. Library of Location Algorithms

LoLA is designed as a software system comprising the algorithmic methods known in location planning. LoLA consists of a GUI (graphical user interface), a text based interface, and a programming interface which is designed to enable the users of LoLA to write their own C++ programs using algorithms from the LoLA -libraries.


Lucid is a flexible and powerful knowledge management tool that helps users make an identification or diagnosis. Lucid3 is an entirely new implementation of the Lucid family of products, providing new features requested by Lucid users and improving the handling of many common functions. The Lucid3 system comprises a Builder and Player for creating and deploying effective and powerful identification and diagnostic keys. The Lucid3 Builder allows an expert in a group of entities (plants, animals, diseases, minerals, archaeological artifacts etc) to create a key that can be deployed over the World Wide Web.


Lucid3 - On-Line Player

The Online Player joins the other two Player options for Lucid3 keys – the Lucid3 Application Player and the Lucid3 Applet – to provide a great service to our clients and your end-users.


Lysandra is a software for creating keys and database on different groups of living organisms.



Mantis is a biological database manager that features the ability to store taxonomic and specimen data, images and sounds, and it has built in managers of citations, specimen loans, and addresses. It has been designed by a practising taxonomist, for taxonomists. It is also a tool for conservationists who want to keep tract of species distribution or create simple identification tools. The emphasis of its design is on quick data entry and painless exploration of data. Mantis has a number of tools that facilitate species description, generation of taxonomic catalogues, or mapping of species distribution.
