The HRT is an extension for ArcGIS to analyze animal home ranges developed by Arthur R. Rodgers at the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and a group of collaborators. The Home Range Extension (HRE) is a similar extension but for ArcView. In addition to home range calculations using several methods, the program supports calculation of other movement statistics and has a data animation tool.
