Maxent software for species habitat modeling
Most current version: 3.3.3k (see new features below). 

Use this site to download software based on the maximum-entropy approach for species habitat modeling.  This software takes as input a set of layers or environmental variables (such as elevation, precipitation, etc.), as well as a set of georeferenced occurrence locations, and produces a model of the range of the given species. 

Further description of this approach can be found in: 

Steven J. Phillips, Miroslav Dudík, Robert E. Schapire. 
A maximum entropy approach to species distribution modeling.
In Proceedings of the Twenty-First International Conference on Machine Learning, pages 655-662, 2004.

Good morning members! 

Has anyone used the MAXENT (maximum entropy) model in ArcGIS 10.1?

Could someone kindly provide me with a link?

Kind Regards,
