Example tiger data for `multimark`

package.

These spatial capture-recapture data with a single mark type are summarized in a list of length 3 containing the following objects:

`Enc.Mat`

is a 44 x (noccas*ntraps) matrix containing observed encounter histories for 44 tigers across `noccas=48`

sampling occasions and `ntraps=120`

traps.

`trapCoords`

is a matrix of dimension `ntraps`

x (2 + `noccas`

) indicating the Cartesian coordinates and operating occasions for the traps, where rows correspond to trap, the first column the x-coordinate, and the second column the y-coordinate. The last `noccas`

columns indicate whether or not the trap was operating on each of the occasions, where ‘1’ indciates the trap was operating and ‘0’ indicates the trap was not operating.

`studyArea`

is a 3-column matrix containing the coordinates for the centroids of the contiguous grid of cells that define the study area and available habitat. Each row corresponds to a grid cell. The first 2 columns indicate the Cartesian x- and y-coordinate for the centroid of each grid cell, and the third column indicates whether the cell is available habitat (=1) or not (=0). The grid cells are 0.336 km^2 resolution.

These data were obtained from the R package `SPACECAP`

and modified by projecting onto a regular rectangular grid consisting of square grid cells (as is required by the spatial capture-recapture models in `multimark`

).

We thank Ullas Karanth, Wildlife Conservation Society, for providing the tiger data for use as an example with this package.
