Alt_Alg_discont: Application of Alt_Alg to discontinuous data

Description Usage Arguments Details Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/Alt_Alg_discont.R

Description

Calculates the residence times from discontinuous data, which can then be used to identify sites of interest. This could also be used to identify sites for a group of animals, by treating each animal's trajectory as one segment of a discontinuous set.

Usage

1
Alt_Alg_discont(Overall_name,Names, t_all, X_all, Y_all, R, s = 10, m = 500, save = 'n')

Arguments

Overall_name

name for the set of separate trajectories

Names

list of names for each trajectory

t_all

list of arrays, one for each trajectory of times when the positions were recorded

X_all

list of arrays, one for each trajectory of x-coordinates

Y_all

list of arrays, one for each trajectory of y-coordinates

R

radius value to use

s

number of time steps between checks for entrances and exits

m

estimate of the maximum number of crossings across all circles

save

if 'y', save the files

Details

This function is used specifically with discontinuous data to calculate the residence times for the trajectories. It works in the same way as for Alt_Alg, by linking together Alt_Alg_mini and combining.

See also Alt_Alg for the algorithim used on continuous data. Alt_Alg_mini is used to calculate the residence times for a particular set of circles and a particular trajectory, then using combining all the residence times for the same circles are summed.
