Read coordinates of points on a habitat mask from a text file.
character string with name of text file
spacing of grid points in metres
character vector naming the columns to save as covariates
other arguments to pass to
For file input, the x and y coordinates are usually the first two values
on each line, separated by white space. If the file starts with a line
of column headers and ‘header = TRUE’ is passed to
the ... argument then ‘x’ and ‘y’ need not be the first two fields.
data is an alternative input route if the x and y coordinates
already exist in R as columns in a dataframe. Only one of
file should be specified.
The grid cell size
spacing should be provided if known. If it is
not provided then an attempt is made to infer it from the minimum
spacing of points. This can be slow and may demand more memory than is
available. In rare cases (highly fragmented masks) it may also yield the
From 2.3.0, additional columns in the input are saved as covariates. The

mask with type ‘user’
read.mask creates a single-session mask. If used in
secr.fit with a multi-session capthist object a
single-session mask will be replicated to the number of sessions. This
is appropriate if all sessions relate to the same geographical
region. If the ‘sessions’ relate to different regions you will need to
construct a multi-session mask as a list of single-session
mask <- list(mask1, mask2, mask3)).

## Replace file name with a valid local name and remove `#' # read.mask (file = "c:\\myfolder\\mask.txt", # spacing = 3, header = TRUE) ## "mask.txt" should have lines like this # x y # 265 265 # 268 265 # ...
