Software

One of our specialties is developing tools and software that help take both our own methodological developments and the methods of others and make them more accessible to broader audiences and leverage them in operational workflows. We sometimes extend existing methods and tools, and other times we develop them from the ground up.

The software tools we build depend on their application, but include:
  • stand-alone GUIs
  • ArcGIS PlugIns and AddIns
  • Command utilities
  • Web Apps
  • Phone apps
  • Scripts (e.g. R, Python, Matlab) 
James Hensleigh is our primary in-house software developer, and we work very closely with Philip Bailey from North Arrow Research.  We also sometimes work with Chris Garrard from the Remote Sensing and GIS Lab.

Below is a partial list of software we've developed or played a substantial role in contributing to:
