Geophlyobuilder



Now this sounds interesting... if it can be integrated
with paleomap overlays, that is:

Geophylobuilder 1.0: an Arcgis extension for creating
‘geophylogenies’
DAVID M. KIDD and XIANHUA LIU
doi:10.1111/j.1471-8286.2007.01925.x

Evolution is inherently a spatiotemporal process;
however, despite this, phylogenetic and geographical
data and models remain largely isolated from one
another. Geographical information systems provide a
ready-made spatial modelling, analysis and
dissemination environment within which phylogenetic
models can be explicitly linked with their associated
spatial data and subsequently integrated with other
georeferenced data sets describing the biotic and
abiotic environment. Geophylobuilder 1.0 is an
extension for the Arcgis geographical information
system that builds a ‘geophylogenetic’
data model from a phylogenetic tree and associated
geographical data. Geophylogenetic database objects
can subsequently be queried, spatially analysed and
visualized in both 2D and 3D within a geographical
information systems.
