Abstract: Metis was developed to allow users to analyze regional and sub-regional multi-sector dynamics by providing a platform to harmonize and amalgamate data from different models and stakeholders operating at variable spatial scales. Metis is an open-source R package hosted on GitHub. Metis functions collectively allow users to compare, manipulate, and harmonize multi-sector data at user-specified spatial scales, and to identify and quantify sectoral inter-linkages. Each Metis function can also be used independently to support an array of other research applications, such as spatial analysis and data visualization.
