This manual is intended to equip readers with the basic knowledge required to use Marxan. We cover all the relevant parameters and necessary data inputs, as well as the steps required to successfully execute the program and interpret the results.
The backbone of Marxan is to facilitate the efficient selection of subsets from a large set of mapped, spatially constant features. While Marxan was originally designed to ensure species and ecosystem representation in biodiversity conservation planning, and has primarily been applied to that field, it has proven applicable to a broad range of planning challenges.
