SHEDS Brook Trout Occupancy Model

Adapted from: Conte-Ecology/Northeast_Bkt_Occupancy.


Most of the scripts in this repo rely on configuration variables set within the file. Because some of these variables contain sensitive information (e.g. database passwords), the file is not tracked in git.

The configuration includes database connection parameters, and the local path to the model data directory.

A template ( is provided, with which a new can be set up.


The current (or active) model version is set within the script, which is tracked by git and should be consistent with the repo tags.

The script sets the environmental variable SHEDS_BTO_VERSION to the minor version only, and does not include the patch number. In other words, it is only of the form X.Y (see Model Versioning above) and does not include a v prefix.
