The AKN Analyst application enables users to retrieve and analyze data they own, or that has been shared with them by a project owner. This application is designed for people with some knowledge about the data, offers password-protected access, and is intended to help develop project reports.

Ravian, a server-based analysis package for visualizing AKN data, is the foundation for the Analyst tool:

  • Developed by Point Blue Conservation Science in the open-source statistical programming language R
  • Uses warehoused data (known type and characteristics data, apples-to-apples)
  • Three main levels of use: fixed pre-designed analyses, flexible exploration and analysis development, and advanced analyses

You can view a quick demo of the Analyst tool feature in the Analyst video tutorial. For technical assistance with the Analyst application or Ravian, contact Leo Salas (
