Conefor for Processing
Integrates Conefor into QGIS Processing framework.
Conefor allows quantifying the importance of habitat areas and links for the maintenance or improvement of connectivity, as well as evaluating the impacts on connectivity of habitat and landscape changes. It is widely used in a spatial ecology analyses and for decision-making support in conservation planning.
NotePlease note, that the plugin does not include Conefor itself. To use the plugin you need to install a command line version of Conefor. Visit Conefor homepage for installation instructions and packages for different operating systems.
Once installed and enabled, Conefor for Processing is registered as a Processing provider and its algorithms are added to the Processing toolbox under the “Conefor” group.
You may need to configure the provider before using its tools. Open QGIS options from the menu “Settings → Options” and go to the “Processing” tab. Expand the “Providers” group and find “Conefor” sub-group; here you will find all settings related to the Conefor provider.
On all platforms you will also need to tell the plugin where to find the Conefor command line executable. If this setting is not set, the plugin will assume that Conefor executable was already added to the
PATH environment variable and it is accessible by name. When done, save settings by pressing “OK”.
Conefor algorithms can be used as any other Processing algorithm: in a standalone mode, as a batch processes, as a part of the models and scripts, using
qgis_process command line tool. Please refer to the QGIS User Guide to learn how to use Processing tools.
