This is a question I am often asked by those tagging and tracking animals.

I believe the main reason to share animal telemetry is to ensure data longevity and make it possible to assess how animal movement may be changing through time.

Moreover, every animal that is captured and tagged is impacted upon by the procedure. We are therefore, ethically obliged to ensure the findings from our studies are maximised -even if this occurs long after we are finished with the data.

There are also personal benefits to you as a user by sharing your data. It will advertise publication...

Goal

I want to visualize how the score of a model changes in relation to select parameters of the model. Ultimately I would like to maximise/minimise my score using an optimizer, but before I think about doing that I would like to convince myself that there are maxima that I can find. I aim to explore a handful of the BIOMOD aglorithms su...

Intro

So I’m new to SDMs. I have a fair bit of machine learning under my belt and am trying to convince myself that SDMs make sense and are useful things! I decided to build and test a basic SDM in the way I would have done based on my previous experience using machine learning and see how it goes.
