Abstract

Ecologists use a wide variety of metrics and software tools to quantify and map spatial patterns in ecological data. For analysis of categorical raster data, we introduce the GuidosToolbox Workbench (GWB), a series of Linux-based command-line modules, implementing popular algorithms from the interactive GuidosToolbox desktop application. We provide an overview of the workbench design, features of the individual modules, and an example implementation on the FAO SEPAL cloud computing environment.
