I finally found the time to (briefly) study adehabitat
Clement Calenge) functions, and I must say I am quite impressed. There are
many (probably most) of the functions we aimed for. So our target is much
closer! Thanks Clement.
At this point:
1. is there somebody willing to test the functions, with their own data or
with those provided by the package itself?
2. can somebody compare point-to-point the functions provided by adehabitat
and those on the wishlist?
3. can somebody compare the graphical and numerical results (on the same
dataset) from adehabitat with those from other software? This is a very
delicate (and interesting) point, especially for kernels (notoriously erratic
across different implementation). This could be a good subject for a paper
(the last review is an oldish one, I think). You're welcome to take the idea!
I think many on the list will be happy to collaborate
4. I believe putting together easy howtos for newbies is important to make the
package more available
5. we should study how to move data (polygons, points, lines) to and from
GRASS, for further more GIS-oriented analyses (eg for DTM: slope, aspect,
etc, and for integration with different data sources).
We are also modifying the web page www.faunalia.com/animov to take into
account this, but we would appreciate help and suggestions.
Please note: adehabitat is a standard R package, which means anybody can
download it and install it on his pc, either on windows or linux. Please ask
for advice if you have problems.
Looking forward to hear from you.
