create.survey.results(object, dht.tables = FALSE, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'Simulation'
create.survey.results(object, dht.tables = FALSE,
  ...)

## S4 method for signature 'Single.Obs.LT.Survey'
create.survey.results(object,
  dht.tables = FALSE, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'Single.Obs.PT.Survey'
create.survey.results(object,
  dht.tables = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

object

an object of class Simulation

dht.tables

logical value indicating whether or the data tables for Hortvitz-Thompson estimation are required.

...

allows a region object to be passed in

Details

This object can be displayed using plot() or the distance data extracted using get.distance.data(). You can then investigate fitting models to this data.
