Marine Geospatial Ecology Tools (MGET) is a free, open-source geoprocessing toolbox that can help you solve a wide variety of marine research, conservation, and spatial planning problems. MGET can perform tasks such as:
- Downloading and converting oceanographic data into GIS formats
- Identifying ecologically-relevant features in remote sensing imagery
- Fitting, evaluating, and mapping statistical models of species habitat
- Modeling habitat connectivity by simulating the dispersal of larvae
MGET includes over 250 tools, with new tools added every few weeks. MGET plugs into ArcGIS and is also invokable from Python and other programming languages.
