dsm: Density surface modelling of distance sampling data

This library implements density surface modelling of line transect data, based on the methods of Hedley et al. (2004). Some recent developments in the literature have also be incorporated. Outputs are point and interval estimates of population abundance and density. Please note that this version of dsm WILL NOT work with the Windows package DISTANCE. For a version that works with DISTANCE, please go to https://github.com/lenthomas/dsm-distance-6.1. For the latest version of dsm, please use the github version at the URL listed below. Miller, D.
