Marxan (Ian Ball and Hugh Possingham, 2000) is a software program used to
support the design of marine and terrestrial reserves worldwide. Using Marxan,
planners can identify an efficient system of conservation sites that include a
suite of biodiversity targets at a minimal cost. Marxan provides a unique method
for designing reserves that is systematic and repeatable. This course will
provide participants with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to use Marxan
in the context of a marine conservation planning exercise. The following topics
are covered in the Introduction to Marxan:

- Key concepts in systematic conservation planning.
- Creation of planning units.
- Creation of essential Marxan input files with GIS software.
- Parameter setting in Marxan.
- Understanding and using Marxan results.
- Zonae Cogito (front-end software to support Marxan).
- Using the Marxan.net cloud system.
- Advanced planning using Marxan with Zones.
- Incorporating uncertainty using Marxan with Probability.
