Phylogenetics2KML: Those phylogeographers sure are a resourceful bunch. If you’re an evolutionary biologist, you may do your analysis with Mesquite. iPhyloflags an update to Mesquite’s cartographer module, which lets you automatically map genetic mutations using trees. The update now lets you export the results as KML. (Previous efforts were home-grown.) iPhylo has the screenshot eye candy.
TITAN does (more) KML: Leica TITAN, a tool for sharing GIS content on a virtual globe, gets an update, and gains the ability to draw polygons on the terrain that can be saved as KML. (From an email to subscribers on September 26 — I can’t for the life of me find a mention on the website. Somebody please help Leica with their corporate communications.)
