This is the main repository for predictions made on the Portal rodent census data Portal Project.
Predictions are made and archived weekly. Approximately once a month, one of these forecasts is made immediately prior to a new trapping session (trapping occurs as close to each new moon as possible).
How to add a new model
Modeling is driven by the portalcasting package. New models can be added there.
Forecasts are run using Travis CI based on a docker image. This makes the builds
faster and more reproducible. When adding new packages to this repo it may be
necessary to update the Docker container. When building, please tag the image with
latest tag, as well as a named tag for the date (yyyy-mm-dd, which you should
replace with the actual current date). Use the following commands:
sudo docker build -t weecology/portal_predictions:latest -t weecology/portal_predictions:yyyy-mm-dd . sudo docker push weecology/portal_predictions
