Boundaries. We encounter them every day – forest ecotones and treelines, the barriers to migration, the edges of pollution plumes, the margins of neighborhoods. Boundaries are where things change. Boundaries are where biological, physical and social processes are at work. Boundaries should be the focus of inquiry, but we haven’t had the analysis tools. Until now. Until BoundarySeer.


BoundarySeer is the premier product for the detection, description and analysis of geographic boundaries. It detects patterns in your data and then tests them statistically. Aside from edge detection, most GIS do not provide any boundary analysis techniques. BoundarySeer fills that gap.


BoundarySeer was developed at BioMedware, using grant funding from the National Cancer Institute. These grants were awarded through scientific peer review, validating the relevance and innovation of our approach.

BoundarySeer identifies spatial patterns, then it assess the probability that those patterns would occur by chance. While other software products offer data description methods, such as contouring, kernel function, or buffer creation, no other software offers the advanced boundary detection and analysis features described below.
