Description

Example tiger data for multimark package.

Format

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.
