I am a strong proponent of open source software and open data as essential components of a more transparent, rapid and inclusive science, especially in ecology, biogeography and conservation sciences. For my spatial analysis I typically use GRASS GIS, R, OGR/GDAL, and QGIS, amongst others. I furthermore use QGIS, Tilemill and Leaflet when I have to create maps (print and online, see e.g., the maps on [[http://vegetationmap4africa.org]]).
