InStreamFisheries/PITR: Functions to collate, manage and summarize PIT telemetry data

PIT telemetry produces very large quantities of data that are difficult to manage in raw format. The PITR package is designed to automate and standardize the process of collating, managing, summarizing and querying PIT telemetry data collected from half-duplex Oregon RFID readers. During data collation, users can choose to export metadata to a working directory to assist in reviewing the analysis process. PITR functions allow users to: (1) collate data from multiple readers and filter out test tags and tags specific to a study; (2) restructure the configuration of readers and antennas into arrays; (3) compute the detection efficiency of antennas or arrays; (4) compute the direction of movement if there were two or more antennas deployed in a study; (5) summarize upstream and downstream movements for each fish on each array; (6) summarize the first and last detections on each antenna; and (7) plot the voltage of each reader over the study duration. Users can summarize data by year, month, week, day and hour. Notably, the quality of the data summaries is reliant on antenna performance.
