Those of you who work with species distribution models might want to take this survey about the software we used to do the modelling. The ecologists at Microsoft Research in Cambridge want to know. The survey closes on July 1st, and only takes 5 minutes.
I’m guessing that they’re thinking about how to develop software for SDMs, and want to know how to do it so that it’s not a waste of time. For what it’s worth, I do my work in R and OpenBUGS, but I’m not a normal SDMer. So if you want something useful to come out of this, do the survey and dilute my answer!
