Hi there, I'm looking at homeranges and using the Geospatial Modelling Environment tool (previously Hawth's tool) to do some KDE work. The population I'm studying lives in a confined area. I'd like to use the shapefile of their habitat to confine the probablility surface. So far I've found I can create the prob surface and then use the habitat shapefile to cut them out (method 1). However, this doesn't make sense as there is 0 probability they will be found outside of their habitat. I was wondering if anyone else had tackled this problem or if anyone knows how to use the border to confine the probabililty surface (method 2)? Or indeed if this is the correct method. I've looked at both Arc's KDE and GME's KDE functions but I can't seem to find anything to help. Processing extents or masks tend to cut of the probability surface meaning it replicates method 1. As always, any help would be appreciated. And Happy Holidays!

Lauren Hi, and thanks for the reply. It's taken a while to get back to you as I must have forgotten to set the notify via email (I don't check my dashboard that often). But I will certainly try out the script you suggest. Sounds great. Your name jumped out too as I did the training seminar relating to regression analysis. I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks. It was a great seminar and really helped me out. All the best and Happy Holidays, Oliver
