Description

This function takes a common census table, consisting of a pair of vectors with ID and observation date, and converts it into a capture-history matrix to be used as part of a BaSTA data input.

Usage

1
CensusToCaptHist(ID, d, dformat = "%Y", timeInt = "Y")

Arguments

ID

A vector with individual IDs.

d

A vector of dates when each individual was observed.

dformat

Defines the date format for d when d is of class character.

timeInt

A one character string specifying which time interval should be used between capture occasions. Arguments are “Y” for years, “M” for months, “W” for weeks and “D” for days.

Details

The d argument can be specified as an object of class POSIXct or POSIXlt, as a vector of integer time intervals or as a character string indicating the day, month and year. (e.g. dd/mm/yyyy, mmddyyyy, mm-dd-yyyy etc.). When d is of class character then argument dformat needs to be specified using the same conventions as in function format.POSIXct for objects of class POSIXct or POSIXlt.
