Description

Generate an additive function value based on a proportional influence variable into an additive function value

Usage

1
additive.function(ssn, VarName, afvName)

Arguments

ssn

a SpatialStreamNetwork-class object

VarName

The name of the the variable that will be used to calculate the additive function value. The data.frame ssn@data must contain a column with this name.

afvName

The name assigned to the column of additive function values, which are added to the ssn@data data.frame object, as well as the data.frames for the observed and prediction sites.

Details

Calculating the additive function values (AFVs) is a two step process; first the VarName values are used to calculate the segment proportional influences (PIs). Then the segment PI's are used to calculate the AFVs for each line segment, observed site, and prediction site in the SpatialStreamNetwork-class object. A detailed description of the segment PIs and the steps used to calculate AFVs are provided in Peterson and Ver Hoef (2010; Appendix A). The AFVs can also be calculated using the Spatial Tools for the Analysis of River Systems (STARS), which is a custom ArcGIS (version 9.3.1) toolbox.

Value

The SpatialStreamNetwork object, ssn, with a new column named VarName included in the data.frames for the lines, observed sites, and prediction sites to hold the AFVs.
