Many of our research activities use sophisticated computer algorithms for data processing and mathematical modeling. Sometimes, however, existing software solutions do not fully meet our demands. In such cases, we look for remedies and occassionally develop generic software tools. These tools are published as open source code under a GNU General Public License and are free of charge. Below are a variety of software addons for General Algebraic Modeling Systems (GAMS) and a R package to calculate conservation target achievement of reserve networks. There is no systematic technical support nor financial compensation for program failures.
Gnuplotxyz (GAMS to Gnuplot) plots GAMS data (parameters, variable levels) in many different ways with Gnuplot - an open source graphing software.
GAMS to ShadeMap uses GAMS data indexed over a set of regions to produce one or more color-shaded maps. The mapping software is called ShadeMap and is developed by Mark Horridge
GAMS to PowerPoint shows how to load a set of GAMS generated Gnuplot figures or Shademaps into a powerpoint file.
GAMS to GAMS writes GAMS data to a clean new file in GAMS format.
GAMS memory check is a simple GAMS utility to sort and list active GAMS items according to size.
ConsTarget is an R package to calculate representation target achievement of conservation features in protected area estates.
