GFlow

GFlow is software for modeling circuit theory-based connectivity at any scale. It expands the capacities of Circuitscape by massively parallelizing the computation of circuit theory to allow for large-extent, fine-grained analyses of connectivity. GFlow was developed to solve large ecological problems in a High Performance Computing environment. If solving a small problem or if you are willing to sacrifice some performance, it can be deployed on a desktop computer.
