With a group of computational ecologists I’m working on a package for R. We implement functions that can import various animal track data into R. These data can then be visualized and analyzed. My colleague Bart Kranstauber created the dynamic Brownian Bridge Movement Model (dBBMM) that estimates the UD, utilization distribution, of an animal according to its track. The dBBMM is a part of the ‘move’ package.
The package is available at the r-forge page as a beta version.
More information are available on the ‘move’ package website.
