Project updates

abundanceR 1.1 now available

After hearing from some folks that they were having problems reading the newer data files from the USGS Point Count Database, I noticed that there have been a few changes in how data are formatted in the point count database. This latest version fixes those issues and should now be able to read either the new or older formats.

Thanks to Sarah Wakamiya from the National Park Service's Mid-Atlantic Network for being the first person to let me know about the problem.

Although abundanceR is designed to automatically work with data files from the USGS Bird Point Count Database, we wanted to allow managers of other large databases to use the program as well. So, if you manage a large database or data center and are interested in creating an export file for abundanceR, there are detailed intructions here:

Analysis tools ready to test

We're now looking for people to test both AbundanceR and Data Explorer. Both programs are in the beta phase and we are looking for feedback before a more general release. If you don't have data in the USGS Point Count Database but would like to try the tools, please contact us and we will provide you with an example dataset.
