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.

Deatailed instructions to install QGIS:

Home Range plugin

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.
