Hi Corrie,

it sounds like the issue reported here:


does your dataset show anisotropy? The one attached to the ticket is a
narrow cloud of points along a horizontal line. The default grid created
by kernelUD is likely not able to encompass the whole UD. If the case, I
would try creating a wider grid and providing it to kernelUD.

hope this helps!
