The main tool is a GUI for Windows, the RAMAS Centroids Tool.

The tools below are command-line applications compiled for Windows. A GUI version, the RAMAS Centroids Tool is available here.

The command line tools that are currently available are:

Tool Name | Brief Description | Documentation |

GetMCPAreas | Returns the area bound by the minimum convex polygon (convex hull) fitted around the metapopulation at each time step of the simulation | HTML |

GetMeans | Returns the mean of the coordinates of each patch with abundance greater than zero, for each time step of the simulation | HTML |

GetNonzeroCount | Returns the number of patches per time step with abundance greater than zero | HTML |

GetNonzeroPoints | Outputs the coordinates and abundance of each patch with an abundance of greater than zero, for each time step of the population | HTML |

GetPopulations | Returns the abundance of each patch at each time step of the population | HTML |

GetRangeShifts | Returns the shift of the metapopulation range margin at each time step of the simulation, where the range margin is a specified proportion of the total abundance | HTML |

GetWeightedMeans | Calculates the weighted mean coordinates of each patch with an abundance greater than zero, for each time step of the simulation, where the weighting factors are the abundance of the patches | HTML |

GetWeightedPropMarginShifts | Returns the proportional shift of the metapopulation range margin at each time step of the simulation, where the range margin is a specified proportion of the total abundance and the coordinates are weighted by the abundance of the patches | HTML |

GetWeightedRangeShifts | Returns the shift of the metapopulation range margin at each time step of the simulation, where the range margin is a specified proportion of the total abundance and the coordinates are weighted by the abundance of the patches | HTML |
