In this new post from the
sftraj series, we now
present a detailed conceptual model for movement, from the basic
location to a complete trajectory. Essentially, this is the logics
sftrajpackage. 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
sftrajseries, we thus review the state of affairs in the R world.
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
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
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.
