The combined consensus method uses a normalization scheme to calculate the initial consensus probabilities for search areas. The initial consensus probabilities are then updated by probability of detection estimates from search efforts. A Bayesian network is then used to update the consensus probabilities into new POA estimates.

The combined consensus method calculator written with Microsoft Excel 2010 is available for download here.
