Marine Geospatial Ecology Tools

Duke University


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.


  • Convert data and products automatically when downloaded
  • Analyze and sample time series rasters
  • Model species habitat with environmental predictor variables
  • Calculate species diversity index grids from species presence points
