Condatis open source
University of Liverpool
Condatis is a user-friendly, open source program, which is available to anyone. It can identify the best locations for habitat creation and restoration to enhance existing habitat networks and increase connectivity across landscapes. The new version of Condatis is a free, online tool, increasing its accessibility and allowing larger landscapes to be analysed.
This launch event will include an introduction to version 1.0, training in applying the tool and interpreting the results, talks from current users and networking with developers and practitioners. The workshop is free and funding is available to cover travel and accommodation costs.
What does Condatis do?
- Highlights pathways that allow both dispersal and multiplication of species as they cross a landscape
- Pinpoints bottlenecks in the habitat network (where there are restricted opportunities for colonisation)
- Ranks the feasible sites for habitat creation and restoration to enhance the existing habitat network efficiently
A draft programme is attached for your information. If you would like to present your work with Condatis, please submit a 250-word abstract at the end of the registration form. We welcome talks from users who are in the planning stage as well as those with more developed projects.
Abstract submission dedline in 7 September and you will be informed whether your abstract has been accepted by 12 September
