Lifemapper Tools

Quantum-GIS Client

qgis

Lifemapper is concurrently developing plug-ins to Quantum-GIS (QGIS, http://qgis.osgeo.org), a versatile open source Geographic Information System (GIS) desktop application, to simplify access to the LmRAD modules and visualize experiment inputs and results in a full-featured GIS application. By using the multi-platform QGIS as a client to the LmRAD services, Lifemapper brings a powerful set of macro-ecological analysis tools to a wide variety of users, regardless of the computational power or operating system of their desktop computer. All outputs are provided in standard formats, to simplify further analysis in other software applications.

This client is available from the QGIS plugin repository.
