Distance - an R package for distance sampling analysis


The most feature-complete distance sampling analysis package (mrds) is not very user friendly. Distance provides a simple interface to the functionality of mrds. Distance is a wrapper around mrds, so eventually it is hoped that all of the features of mrds will be incorporated.

For advice about distance sampling analyses and survey methodology in general, try the distance sampling e-mail list. If you think you've found a bug in Distance, you can report it on github.

The aim is for Distance to include most of the functionality of mrds. If there is a particular feature that you would like to see please log it as an Issue.
