Software - Home Range Tools (HRT)

Posted in

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.
