Abstract: Marzone is a new systematic decision support planning tool that can be applied to planning land or marine areas. It uses open source software and has been dveloped by the University of Queensland's Ecology Group and is a more sofisticated version of their well known 'marxan' tool. The paper illustrates the differences between the two modelling methods and presents a detailed case study on how marzone has been applied to the multiple use marine park of Rottnst Island in Western Australia and how it is planned to be used in the Coral Triangle areas of Raja Ampat and Padaido, Irian Jaya, and Wakatobi in Indonesia.
