A new R package to ease the analysis of animal movement and remote sensing or any kind of spatial environmental data has been published. The rsMove package so far provides the following functions:

  • Dynamic analysis of environmental change (spatial and temporal)
  • Dynamic temporal query of remote sensing data
  • Movement segmentation based on environmental information
  • Statistical background sampling
  • Image interpolation and compositing
  • Movement sampling and sample clustering
  • Spatially stratified predictive modeling

more functions will follow. The rsMove package can be installed via CRAN using install.packages(“rsMove”). Please see here for more details: https://github.com/RRemelgado/rsMove – in case you have wishes or suggestions for further functionality please approach the developer Ruben Remelgado (ruben.remelgado@uni-wuerzburg.de)
