sftraj: Existing classes for trajectory data in R

We now have a problem, a team, and use cases to consider for our sftraj package. In order to be relevant, we also need to know what does already exist in R, what other projects have attempted to deal with trajectories and tracking data, and what lessons can we learn from this. In this post of the sftraj series, we thus review the state of affairs in the R world.

sftraj: Work plan and call for contribution

After introducing the problem and our team in the previous blog post, we now present in this second post of the ‘sftraj’ series a brief overview of the sftraj package as projected, and how we will work to implement it. Most importantly, we also ask your help, and explain how you (developers and users!) can contribute to the success of sftraj.

sftraj: A central class for tracking and movement data

It is now official, our proposal to the R Consortium to code an R package dedicated to tracking data has been accepted! In this first blog post of the ‘sftraj’ series, we will introduce the problem and the need for such a package, before getting into the nuts and bolts of the proposal.

A review of movement packages is on the way… We need your help with a survey!
