IBD is a fast and simple application for analyzing (genetic) isolation by (geographic) distance.

This program has been replace by IBDWS (IBD Web Service) at http://ibdws.sdsu.edu/

IBDWS is a web-based version of IBD with bug fixes, downloadable Postscript scatterplots, the ability to process raw DNA data, and an easy to use interface.  PC-based versions of IBD still work very well on the operating systems they were compiled for, but they will no longer be updated with new features.
