Distance-package: Distance sampling

Description Details Author(s) References

Description

Distance is a simple way to fit detection functions and estimate abundance using distance sampling methodology.

Details

Underlying Distance is the package mrds, for more advanced analyses (such as those involving double observer surveys) one may find it necessary to use mrds.

Examples of distance sampling analyses are available at http://examples.distancesampling.org/.

For help with distance sampling and this package, there is a Google Group https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/distance-sampling.
