Are you looking for a tool to streamline Marxan analyses?

David Tellier from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources has developed scripts to reduce GIS technical difficulties and improve efficiency of data loading for Marxan projects!

The target audience for the scripts include:
– Marxan beginners
– Anyone using ArcGIS Desktop to assemble input data for Marxan
– Anyone using ArcGIS Desktop to generate summaries and maps for presentation of Marxan outputs

We are looking for Marxan users (particularly new users) for feedback on these scripts – please check them out here.
Question and comments for improvement can be submitted on the linked discussion site or emailed to info(at)

Thank you for helping make Marxan more accessible!
