maskRangeR is an R package that refines species distribution models (SDMs) to improve estimates of species’ current ranges in several ways:

Refined range maps can be considered as improved representations of a species’ realized distribution, aiding in conservation decision-making.

Additionally, maskRangeR will soon be available as a module for Wallace; a user-friendly R application for species distribution modeling that provides guidance towards following best-practices at each step of the process. This application makes state-of-the-art modeling tools accessible and transparent to users without having to rely on computer coding skills.
