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


The OpenModeller project aims to provide a flexible, user friendly, cross-platform environment where the entire process of conducting a fundamental niche modeling experiment can be carried out. The software includes facilities for reading species occurrence and environmental data, selection of environmental layers on which the model should be based, creating a fundamental niche model and projecting the model into an environmental scenario. A number of fundamental niche modeling algorithms are provided as plug-ins, including GARP, Climate Space Model, Bioclimatic Envelopes, and others.

Biomapper. A GIS-toolkit to model ecological niche and habitat suitability

Biomapperis a kit of GIS and statistical tools designed to build habitat suitability models and maps for any kind of animal or plant. It is centred on the Ecological Niche Factor Analysisthat allows to compute models without the need of absence data.

DIVA-GIS Annapurna

Another version of the same DIVA-GIS programme.

The R Project for Statistical Computing

R is the most complete and freely available software for statistical computing and graphics allowing the accomplishment of Generalized Linear Models, Generalized Additive Models, Classification and Regression Trees or Neural Networks models.


A R library for the statistical analysis of spatial point patterns.


A R library useful for site selection and spatial survey designs.

ResNet and Surrogacy

ResNet is a place prioritization software package designed to select places according to their biodiversity content. Surrogacy allow to test if environmental surrogates can represent biodiversity components

SITATION. Facility Location Software.

The SITATION software solves several classes of location problems running under Windows 95. This program as others are fully described in the book Network and Discrete Location: Models, Algorithms, and Applications.


S-Distance is a standalone Spatial Decision Support System, mainly focused on location-allocation analysis. While still being in an early stage, the software is functional and has been tested on many classical Operation Research instances, as well as on several real-world problems. S-Distance is currently being created using Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 and is intended to be used for educational purposes only.

SAM. Spatial Analysis in Macroecology

SAM is a compact but robust computer program designed as a package of statistical tools for spatial analysis, mainly for applications in Macroecology and Biogeography. SAM runs under Microsoft Windows as a user-friendly, menu-driven, graphical interface computational program. SAM offers a wide spectrum of statistical methods currently used in Surface Pattern Spatial Analysis.

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.


Zonation is a reserve selection framework for spatial conservation planning. It identifies areas important for retaining habitat quality and connectivity for multiple species, indirectly aiming at species’ long-term persistence. Zonation can be used for various purposes such as spatial conservation prioritization, conservation assessment, reserve selection and reserve network design.

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.


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.


SPECRICH Computes species richnessor total number of species from empirical species abundance distribution data.

EcoSim. Null model software for ecologists

EcoSim allows you to test for community patterns with non-experimental data performing Monte Carlo randomizations to create “pseudo-communities”, then statistically compares the patterns in these randomized communities with those in the real data matrix.

SPADE. Species Prediction And Diversity Estimation

SPADE estimates species richness, shared species richness and various diversity and similarity indices, based on different types of sample data from one or two communities.

Ws2m. Software for the measurement and analysis of species diversity

Ws2m estimate the number of species in a collection of identified individuals generating a series of statistics for a randomly ordered data set. Ws2m uses a large (and user-controllable) variety of estimators to produce the estimates. It also reports the number of individuals used to that point and the actual number of species so far obtained in the collection. It can report species-abundance distributions and Jaccard indices.

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.
