FunConn

FunConn is a toolbox for ArcGIS that allows users to create terrestrial habitats and landscape network models. The habitat model is based on species’ vegetation affinities, so a landcover layer is the minimal dataset required to run the model. No sampling data is required. The Analysis toolset allows for graph theoretic or network-type analyses to be executed on landscape networks for modeling least cost paths between fragmented habitats.
