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
Please note that this version of dsm WILL NOT work with the Windows
package DISTANCE earlier than version 6.2. For a version that works with
DISTANCE 6.1, please go to:
