Distance is a Windows-based computer package that allows you to design and analyze distance sampling surveys of wildlife populations.
Distance evolved from program TRANSECT. However, Distance is quite different from its predecessor as a result of changes in analysis methods and expanded capabilities. The name Distance was chosen because it can be used to analyze several forms of distance sampling data: line transect, point transect (variable circular plot) and cue-counts. By contrast TRANSECT was designed only to analyze line transect data.
