A collection of home range plugins

Developing python plugins for QGIS is easy, cheap, and fast. Our aim is to have a toolbox in which anybody can add her/his own preferred analyses.

AniMove for Sextante

Under development. Dev: Francesco Boccacci

The idea: implement kernel analyses and restricted MCP in Pure Python, without the need to install R and its libraries.

The plugin is available through the QGIS official repo.

Home Range plugin

Dev: Anne Ghisla

See http://www.qgis.org/wiki/HomeRange_plugin and http://www.faunalia.pt/plugins.

RandomHR

Dev: Borys Jurgiel

The idea: given a series of polygons (home ranges, possibly from Anne plugin) and a containing polygon (the study area), throws the polygons randomly many times (N chosen by the user) and calculates the average overlap between them.

A few notes:

  • if a HR is a multipolygon, it is rotated and moved as a whole
  • for very small ranges, rounding errors may cause problem; however, this is insignificant for any animal with home ranges larger then 10 m2

The plugin is available through the QGIS official repo.

Triangulation

Dev: Borys Jurgiel

The plugin is available through the QGIS official repo.
