The Conservation Land-Use Zoning (CLUZ) plugin for QGIS allows users to design protected area networks and conservation landscapes. It can be used for on-screen planning and also acts as a link for the Marxan conservation planning software. Visit the CLUZ webpage to download the software and learn more about it.


MinPatch is a software package that updates outputs from Marxan,  allowing the user to specify the minimum size of the protected areas identified to meet conservation targets and minimise costs. It has now been incorporated into the CLUZ QGIS plugin. Visit the MinPatch webpage to learn more about the software.
