Convex hull model

Share:

Description

The Convex hull model predicts that a species is present at sites inside the convex hull of a set of training points, and absent outside that hull. I.e. this is the spatial convex hull, not an environmental hull.

Usage

1

Arguments

p

point locations (presence). Two column matrix, data.frame or SpatialPoints* object

...

Additional arguments. See details

Details

You can supply an argument n (>= 1) to get n convex hulls around subsets of the points. You can also set n=1:x, to get a set of overlapping polygons consisting of 1 to x parts. I.e. the first polygon has 1 part, the second has 2 parts, and x has x parts.

Value

An object of class 'ConvexHull' (inherits from DistModel-class)
