dsm: Density Surface Modelling of Distance Sampling Data

Density surface modelling of line transect data. A Generalized Additive Model-based approach is used to calculate spatially-explicit estimates of animal abundance from distance sampling (also presence/absence and strip transect) data. Several utility functions are provided for model checking, plotting and variance estimation.
