rSARP: Functions to Create and Evaluate Search and Rescue Plans

Tools to create, evaluate, critique, revise, track progress, and communicate a detailed wilderness or urban search plan to management. This package uses and creates csv files in the R working directory to document inputs and results. It also creates a series of PDF and PNG files to accomplish communication of the plan. The program creates and revises search plans using Bayesian models. The package includes functions bestsearch(), searchstatus() and searchme() to model the number of searchers and hours required to search an area, calculate the probability of detection, probability of success, and project the best plan given limited resources.
