actel: Acoustic Telemetry Data Analysis

Designed for studies where animals tagged with acoustic tags are expected to move through receiver arrays. This package combines the advantages of automatic sorting and checking of animal movements with the possibility for user intervention on tags that deviate from expected behaviour. The three analysis functions (explore(), migration() and residency()) allow the users to analyse their data in a systematic way, making it easy to compare results from different studies. CJS calculations are based on Perry et al. (2012) <>.
