Fit_with_dbinomLocal_normalPlateau_and_HomeRangeAreaComputation.rmd
version 0.1.3 (2021-10-22)
-- added point process distribution functions:
Density: dbernppAC; dpoisppAC.R
Movement/density: dbernppACmovement_normal.R; dbernppACmovement_exp.R
Movement/density (LocalVersion): dbernppLocalACmovement_normal.R; dbernppLocalACmovement_exp.R
Detection: dbernppDetection_normal.R; dpoisppDetection_normal.R
Detection (LocalVersion): dbernppLocalDetection _normal.R; dpoisppLocalDetection_normal.R
Normalizing constant for Semi-likelihood: dnormalizer.R
-- added point process functions used internally in the distribution
function (calcWindowSizes; getWindowIndex; integrateIntensityLocal_normal;
integrateIntensityLocal_exp; integrateIntensity_normal;
integrateIntensity_exp; stratRejectionSampler_normal;
stratRejectionSampler_exp; makeConstantNimbleFunction;
marginalVoidProbIntegrand)
-- added function to do the numerical integration of the marginal void
probability: marginalVoidProbNumIntegration()
-- added function to obtain lower and upper habitat coordinates and the
habitat grid to do the fast look-up of cell id from x and y coordinates:
getWindowCoords.
-- added function to obtain midpoint nodes coordinates for numerical
integration : getMidPointNodes
-- added a vignette describing how to use the point process functions:
Point_Process.Rmd
version 0.1.2 (2021-07-01)
-- added extra arguments for the dbinomLocal_normal() function so it can
also model trap covariates on p0.
-- added dpoisLocal_normal(), and the possibility to model trap
covariates on lambda.
-- added the ‘r’ version dbinomLocal_normal() and dpoisLocal_normal()
function to simulate SCR data.
-- added the possibility to use getSparseY() to merge all information
about individual detections in one single vector, instead of 3 separate
objects (necessary when using the “r” version of dbinomLocal_normal() and
dpoisLocal_normal()).
-- added Soumen Dey as an author.
-- moved wolverine vignette in the package. Added the wolverine dataset
in the package (in the testthat folder). The working directory to load the
wolverine data is based on ‘Sys.info()['user']’ (same as we do in
makePackage.R).
-- created a vignette describing how to use nimble and
dbinomLocal_normal() to simulate and fit SCR models.
-- fixed bug in scaleCoordsToHabitatGrid when scaleToGrid=F.
-- fixed typo in scaleCoordsToHabitatGrid and getSparseY.
-- added unit-testing using the testthat package:
- tested UtilityFunctions (getSparseY, scaleCoordsToHabitatGrid,getLocalObjects).
- tested dbinomLocal_normal (Make sure we obtain the same
model$calculate() than reported in Daniel’s paper for the wolverine example,
simulate and fit binomial SCR data with a nimble model and check that
estimates are ‘close’ to the simulated ones).
- tested dpoisLocal_normal (simulate and fit poisson SCR data with a
nimble model and check that estimates are ‘close’ to the simulated ones).
version 0.1.1 (2021-01-07)
-- getLocalTraps(): added a check (return an error) so that we make sure
that the ‘dmax’ value we picked is large enough so that an AC location
located far away in the buffer still has a chance of being detected with the
local detectirs. Basically all habitat cell center should have >0 one
“local” trap. This function is deprecated and getLocalObjects() should be
used instead. I added a “deprecated” warning message that appears when
running the function.
-- Added a new function to replace getLocalTraps() now called
getLocalObjects().
-- dbinom_sparseLocalSCR(): Some internal changes where we don’t fully
re-construct the y and gain in efficiency. dbinom_sparseLocalSCR(): function
is deprecated and dbinomLocal_normal() should be used instead. I couldn’t
add a deprecated message for the nimble function. So the warnings about the
deprecated functions are printed when loading the package by adding a
packageStartupMessage() in the zzz.R file.
-- Added a new function to replace dbinom_sparseLocalSCR(), now called
dbinomLocal_normal ().
-- Added a scaleCoordsToHabitatGrid() function. Rescale the coordinates is
necessary to run all our functions (i.e. fast habitat cell lookup. I guess
we should do a proper vignette on this). I added credits to Mike Meredith
for this technique in the description of the function.
It can take as input up to 5 dimensions (5 should be enough for now) array
of coordinates and scale it to the grid or rescale it back to its original
coordinate with the argument “scaleToGrid = F”. It requires the dimnames
(“x” and “y”) to be specified but x and y can be in any dimension of the
array (useful as posterior x and y coordinates are not always on the same
dimensions depending on open-pop, and indexing the user is using…).
-- Adjusted the wolverine vignette with the use of the new functions .
-- Added in the description file that it is now:
-- Corrected a few typos here and there.
