The times recorded on camera trap photos provide information on the period during the day that a species is most active. Species active at the same periods may interact as predator and prey, or as competitors. The functions in this package allow the overlap to be quantified, and provide means of estimating confidence intervals with bootstraps.
The functions in this package were originally optimised for a simulation study. Hence, speed is important and checking of input is minimal. It is the user's responsibility to make sure that input is valid.
In particular, note that all times are measured in radians. If your original data use 0-24 hours or 0-1 days, convert to radians: see the example in
kerinci. If you need fitted densities in other units, use the output from
Mike Meredith, based on work by Martin Ridout.

overlapTrue for the definition of the coefficient of overlapping, and
overlapEst for equations for the estimators. See
kerinci for an example of calculation of overlap and confidence interval from real data.
The R package activity has more functions for analysis of animal activity patterns.
