moveud-package: Simple export routines for utilization distributions for BBMM...

Description Details Author(s) References


This package creates either a SpatialLineDataFrame or a SpatialPolygonsDataFrame and outputs individual step-specific shapefiles of contour lines representing the utlization distribution for a specific time step for dynamic brownian bridge movement models as detailed in Kranstauber et al. (2012). Additionally, this package allows for exporting bbmm.contour() output to a polygon shapefile as well. Note that this package uses a significant number of other R packages to stitch the various things together so I wanted to give credit where it was due so be sure to see Description for the list of required packages I used.
