Connectivity Tool Decision Guide

Are you looking for a tool or program to help you design, implement, and/or manage corridors and connectivity in the landscape? Our Connectivity Tool Decision Guide is aimed at guiding you towards the most appropriate tool to use for your specific project.

It is often the case that multiple tools are needed to more accurately address your questions, so it may be beneficial to work through the Decision Guide more than once. Keep in mind that this is meant to be only a suggestion, and finding the most appropriate tool(s) to use is often determined by multiple factors that may be outside the scope of these questions.

For more information on tools used in mapping connectivity, see:
