VEGEDAZ is a software for recording and analysing vegetation data. It comprises several components:

  • The core of the system is a table editor. In addition to the usual input helpers, tabular and graphical functions are offered, which support exploring the data.
  • The table editor is connected to a database system, which manages species lists, indicator values and other information. The database helps for the preparation and synonymisation of vegetation data.
  • The software includes analysis tools for evaluating ecological indicator values, assignment to vegetation types, calculation of diversity indices, statistical tests and other evaluations.
  • For further analyses, there is an interface to the statistical package R. A collection of R scripts is included in the scope of delivery of VEGEDAZ.
