grsg_lekdb: Compiling and standardizing greater sage-grouse lek databases, version 1.1.0

Greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) are landscape-scale sagebrush obligate species and an important gamebird and iconic species of the western United States. They occupy the sagebrush biome in western North America, extending east of the Sierra Nevada/Cascade Mountain ranges to the western regions of the Great Plains of the United States. Sage-grouse are one of the most closely monitor

Mojave Seed Menus: a new spatial tool for restoration software release v1.0

Mojave Seed Menus is a spatial decision-support tool designed to help land managers create suitable seed mixes for restoration sites, such as a burned area or other mapped spatial feature. The application provides coverage for the Mojave Desert ecoregion. Seed menus are based on a combination of habitat suitability models for 50 priority restoration plant species. Species are selected based on the

Arctic Shorebird Population Model

R script to run one example of the stochastic matrix models run by Weiser et al. to simulate shorebird population trends and elasticities.

popcluster: Developing Hierarchical Population Monitoring Frameworks for mobile species with high site fidelity

The software "popcluster" constructs hierarchically nested groupings of similar habitats associated with field surveys while considering biological structure/connectedness (movements between habitats). This approach can support mobile species with high site fidelity where monitoring during surveys occurs on birthing grounds, breeding grounds, or stopovers/seasonal habitat for migratory species. Ea

R script for email delivery of sea ice imagery and charts to users with limited bandwidth

This software package represents an effort to enable access of sea ice charts and imagery in support of daily logistics planning where internet bandwidth and geoprocessing abilities are limited. The script acquires, processes and delivers these data in a format that may be manipulated by openly available virtual globe software, be visualized by software commonly installed on all smart phones and c

Random Landscape Tool 10.5

Random Landscape Tool uses a raster data source and a table of classifications to create a random landscape. The classification table allows the user to weight the probability of occurrence to certain classes and to spatially restrict the distribution of classes to certain areas (zones).
