GIS is a technology of growing importance in our mobile driven world. We are the proud creators of The LOUIS Toolkit which provides the power of GIS and robust data management for regular folks to collect and use community data to make decisions. For professional GIS users we have created a number of QGIS plugins and ArcGIS plugins to support spatial planning and analysis.


We provide GIS training and analytical and spatial planning services with clients across North America. Our GIS training focuses on First Nations communities in association with TSAG. We have expertise in the use of Marxan for spatial planning and have worked on projects in terrestrial, marine and freshwater ecosystems.

QMarxan & ArcMarxan version 1.1 released

We are happy to announce the release of version 1.1 for both the QMarxan Toolbox and the ArcMarxan Toolbox. This new release of QMarxan is for QGIS 3.x and as before ArcMarxan is for ArcGIS 10.2 and above. With the 1.1 release these two tools now work in the exact same way, allowing GIS technicians to use the platform of their choice to do their calculations for Marxan and then convert the results, stored in a single table, into Marxan input files. As before, there is also a simple reporting tool which allows users to select portions of their results and look at what features or species are found in those areas.

For details on each tool see the links below:
