openModeller

openModeller is a fundamental niche modelling library, providing a uniform method for modelling distribution patterns using a variety of modelling algorithms.

The OpenModeller project aims to provide a flexible, user friendly, cross-platform environment where the entire process of conducting a fundamental niche modeling experiment can be carried out. The software includes facilities for reading species occurrence and environmental data, selection of environmental layers on which the model should be based, creating a fundamental niche model and projecting the model into an environmental scenario. A number of fundamental niche modeling algorithms are provided as plug-ins, including GARP, Climate Space Model, Bioclimatic Envelopes, and others.
