  • Runs on the Psychology Experiment Building Language (PEBL), available at pebl.sourceforge.net/
  • Flexible, easy to use, and open source. 
  • Simulator for UAV based and other aerial search. 
  • For Path Reconstruction Task data analysis, use the Optimal Path Mapping Algorithm package (Mueller, Perelman, & Veinott, 2013) for R, available at https://sites.google.com/a/mtu.edu/mapping/
