Description Details Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

meltt is a framework for merging and disambiguating event data based on spatiotemporal co-occurrence and secondary event characteristics. It can account for intrinsic "fuzziness" in the coding of events, varying event taxonomies and different geo-precision codes.

Details

The meltt function iteratively matches multiple datasets by isolating proximate events based on a user-specified spatio-temporal window to determine co-occurrence. It then assesses potential matches by leveraging secondary event characteristics formalized as user-specified input taxonomies.
