COURSE ON MARXAN (Spatial Prioritization with MARXAN)

Oliver Hooker, January 4, 2018
 

Spatial Prioritization with MARXAN (MRXN01)

Scotland, 5th – 9th March 2018

This course will be delivered by Jennifer McGowan part of the MARXAN development team

Course overview: Marxan (Ian Ball and Hugh Possingham, 2000) is a software program used to support the design of marine and terrestrial reserves. Marxan is now used by over 6000 people in 150 countries, making it the most the most widely used conservation planning tool in the world. In simple terms, Marxan analyzes scientific and geographic data to help users allocate space in ways that maximize values such as biodiversity, land value, cultural significance, and economic productivity whilst minimizing cost. This hands-on course will provide participants with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to use Marxan in a conservation planning exercise. The following topics will be covered in the course:

• Key concepts in systematic conservation planning

• Problem definition

• Creation of planning units and using geospatial data

• Creating the essential Marxan input files

• Parameter setting in Marxan

• Understanding and interpreting Marxan results

• Post-hoc evaluation and performance metrics

• Advanced topics: Introduction to Marxan with Zones, Marxan with Connectivity, and Marxan with Probability
