A Summary: iTUPA is a free online application for automatizing the Topographic-Unit Parsimony Analysis (TUPA), which identifies areas of endemism based on topography. iTUPA generates species-occurrences matrices based on user-defined topographic units (TUs) and provides a parsimony analysis of the generated matrix. We tested iTUPA after a proposal of regionalization for the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. iTUPA can handle millions of species registers simultaneously and uses Google Earth high-definition maps to visually explore the endemism data. We believe iTUPA is a useful tool for further discussions on biodiversity conservation. (AU)
