The collection of tools, also known as the GeoEco Python package, is an open-source geoprocessing toolbox that includes over 250 tools useful for a variety of tasks. Tool functions include downloading oceanographic data sets in GIS-compatible formats, identifying fronts and eddies in satellite images, building statistical habitat models and maps, modeling biological connectivity by simulating hydrodynamic larval dispersal, and building grids that summarize fishing effort, catch per unit effort, and other statistics.
