munterfinger/eRTG3D: Empirically Informed Random Trajectory Generation in 3-D

Creates realistic random trajectories in a 3-D space between two given fix points, so-called Conditional Empirical Random Walks. The trajectory generation is based on empirical distribution functions extracted from observed trajectories (training data) and thus reflects the geometrical movement characteristics of the mover. A digital elevation model (DEM), representing the Earth's surface, and a background layer of probabilities (e.g. food sources, uplift potential, waterbodies, etc.) can be used to influence the trajectories.
