Calculate the mean (or weighted mean) of several predictions.
A dataframe object with SDM predictions.
Weight of the model, e.g. AUC. The default is 1.
Threshold used to binarize.
The Weighted Average consensus method utilizes pre-evaluation of the predictive performance of the single-models. In this approach, half (i.e. four) of the eight single-models with highest accuracy are selected first, and then a WA is calculated based on the pre-evaluated AUC of the single-models
A weighted mean binary transformation of the models.
