Ecological Modeling

The core of our business is developing transparent, state-of-the-art models in support of ecological forecasting. We work closely with our clients and other experts to translate their ecological understanding into appropriate models.

Our major areas of focus include modeling land cover and vegetation change, population dynamics of animals and disease, and ecosystem services such as carbon storage and habitat connectivity. We also specialize in integrating big data (including spatial data) and uncertainty into our model forecasts.

As part of our commitment to open science, the source code for our models is generally published online; many of our models are also accompanied by peer-reviewed publications developed collaboratively with our clients.

Software Development

We work hand-in-hand with our clients to develop the custom software tools required to deliver actionable model forecasts to decision makers.

These tools generally integrate both custom model scripts, written in languages such as R, Python and C#, and existing third-party model programs representing domain-specific best available science. 

Scripts and programs are typically bundled together and delivered to end-users – both as desktop and web applications – using our free SyncroSim modeling framework. 

Key Technologies

For those projects involving software development, our key technologies include:

Programming: R, Python, C#, C++, VB.NET, Java, JavaScript, PHP

Databases: SQLite, MySQL, SQL Server, Access

GIS: ArcGIS, GDAL, QGIS, GRASS

Training and Support

A key element of working with us is the ongoing support we provide for our tools and services. We are experts in workshop facilitation, working interactively with clients and stakeholders to build their forecasting solutions from the ground-up. We regularly offer customized software training in the software tools we develop. Hourly support can also be purchased online, as required, at any time and in any amount. 

Free SyncroSim Support 

Our SyncroSim family of software tools includes a wide range of free training and support materials, including online documentation, instructional videos, and discussion forums
