Hello Nils,

a triangulation function has been recently ported to R and is available
on SVN:

svn co svn://home.prea.net/svn/triang/trunk

triang.R is the script containing the algorithm, do.triang.R is a test
based on data in fix.dbf. The code is in a very alpha state, further
testing and hopefully development is welcome :)
For animal movement software in general, keep an eye also on Animove
list (in copy).

Hope this helps,
Anne Ghisla
