Software

  • AniMove is add-on software for analysis of animal movement and ranging behaviour using QGIS+GRASS+R.
    Authors: Support by Faunalia.it
  • v.transect.kia calculates kilometric abundance indexes (KIA), a common indirect presence index used in wildlife monitoring along line transect surveys. Path lengths can be corrected by draping on a DEM, different type of point objects can be weighted according to their relative importance, and paths can be segmented using a further polygon vector (to calculate, say, abundances per elevation range or per habitat class). The module is written in bash and needs a GRASS install compiled with sqlite support.
