phenesse: Estimate phenological metrics using presence-only data

CRAN_Status_Badge DOI

The phenesse package provides tools in R to estimate phenological metrics using presence only data. The package includes a new Weibull-parameterized estimator described in Belitz et al. (2020) ( Additionally, the package provides a non-parametric bootstrap approach to estimating confidence intervals for this estimator as well as quantile and mean estimates.

Note that generating confidence intervals of a Weibull-parameterized estimate is very computationally expensive. We recommend exploring parallelization options when generating many CIs of Weibull-parameterized estimates. An example of parallelization can be found in the vignette.
