Welcome to the dsm wiki!

dsm is a package to model the spatial distribution of animals using data collected from a distance sampling (amongst others) survey. DSM stands for density surface model, though we often use such models to calculate abundance the name has stuck.

dsm is an R package and is designed to be used with Jeff Laake's mrds package or Dave Miller's Distance package.
