RAMAS®/GIS is designed to link your GIS with a metapopulation model for population viability analysis and extinction risk assessment. Habitats used by most species are becoming increasingly fragmented, requiring a metapopulation modeling approach to risk analysis. Recognizing habitat patchiness from an endangered species' point of view requires spatial information on habitat suitability. RAMAS®/GIS meets both of these requirements by linking metapopulation modeling with landscape data and GIS technology.
Use RAMAS® GIS to
- link your GIS to an ecological model,
- use landscape data in your population viability analysis,
- incorporate changes in habitat into a metapopulation model,
- combine geographic and demographic data for risk assessment
