Bayesian changepoint detection and time series decomposition


Extract the result of a single time series from an object of class beast


    tsextract( x, index = 1 ) 



a "beast" object returned by beast, beast.irreg, or beast123. It may contain one or many time series.


an integer (default to 1 ) or a vector of two integers to specify the index of the time series to extract if x contains results for multiple time series. If x has 1 time series, index should be always 1. If x is returned by beast123 applied to a 2D input,index should be a single index. If x is from beast123 applied to 3D arrays of time series (e.g., stacked satellite images), index can be a linear index or two subscripts to specify the row and column of the desired pixel/grid.


A LIST object of the result for the chosen time series, which contains the same field as x.


Use this function only to manually and interactively examine individual times series. If the purpose is to loop through x, the use of direct indexing is much faster. For example, if x is a beast object for a 300x200x1000 3D array (row x col x time), use x$trend$Y[20,40,] to get the fitted trend at the pixel of row 20 and col 40.
