Linkage Mapper uses GIS maps of core habitat areas and resistances to identify and map linkages between core areas. It identifies adjacent (neighboring) core areas and creates maps of least-cost corridors between them. It then mosaics the individual corridors to create a single composite corridor map. It includes a suite of tools that can be used for specific tasks, such as adjusting for climate or identifying pinch points.
