ecospat.Epred: Prediction Mean

Description

Calculate the mean (or weighted mean) of several predictions.

Usage

1
ecospat.Epred (x, w=rep(1,ncol(x)), th=0)

Arguments

x

A dataframe object with SDM predictions.

w

Weight of the model, e.g. AUC. The default is 1.

th

Threshold used to binarize.

Details

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

Value

A weighted mean binary transformation of the models.
