LatPos = 2, iter = 10, CellSize = 5, longBounds = c(-180, 180),

`nLocCut` |
- The minimum number of locations a taxon must be seen at to have geographic range measures calculated |

`OccMatrix` |
- A matrix where columns are taxon occurrences and also having at least longitude and latitude values |

`TaxaStart` |
- The column index value where taxon records start |

`LongPos` |
- The column index value of longitudinal coordinates in the OccMatrix |

`LatPos` |
- The column index value of latitudinal coordinates in the OccMatrix |

`iter` |
- The number of times a taxon's locations are resampled at each step size |

`CellSize` |
- The size of each cell in degree X degree |

`longBounds` |
- Array of longitudinal boundaries in decimal degrees |

`latBounds` |
- Array of latitudinal boundaries in decimal degrees |

`steps` |
- Array of the values representing the number of points to be subsampled for each taxon |

`replacePts` |
- A logical value indicating whether points are allowed to be sampled more than once during each subsampling iteration |

The nLocCut parameter is the minimum number of distinct geographic locations a taxon must be observed at to have geographic range measures calcualted, if below retruns NA. The steps parameter typically begins with a 1 representing that all points should be used in calculations but this is not required. The replacePts parameter must be set to TRUE if any of the steps require a greater number of points to be sampled than there are actual locations for a taxon, otherwise the function will fail.

Returns a vector where each element is a taxon with a list of each geographic range measure as a separate matrix of values. Measures include minimum spanning tree distance, minimum convex hull area, maxmimum pairwise great circle distance, latitudinal range, longitudinal range, and number of degree X degree cells occupied.

If PEE values are to be calculated as a next step the steps parameter needs to have a value of 1 as its first value
