HABITUS currently builds on four existing open-source software tools: PALMSpy, GGIR, Activity Counts and PALMSplus. In HABITUS, the tools have been linked and given a joint user interface making it easier for users to process their accelerometer and GPS data.
More information about each of the four tools can be found online, where they also can be downloaded.

In the near future, HABITUS will become available as a downloadable Docker package that can be installed to run on other cloud computing systems, or a high-end desktop.

As with any open-source software, HABITUS is a work in progress. We will keep developing it for our projects and needs, and we are always keen to collaborate with others, integrate new functionality, and improve existing functions.
