New package alphahull with initial version 0.1
Package: alphahull
Title: Generalization of the convex hull of a sample of points in the plane
Version: 0.1
Date: 2009-03-26
Author: Beatriz Pateiro-Lopez, Alberto Rodriguez-Casal.
Maintainer: Beatriz Pateiro-Lopez
Depends: tripack
Description: This package computes the alpha-shape and alpha-convex hull of a given sample of points in the plane. The concepts of alpha-shape and alpha-convex hull generalize the definition of the convex hull of a finite set of points. The programming is based on the duality between the Voronoi diagram and Delaunay triangulation. The package also includes a function that returns the Delaunay mesh of a given sample of points and its dual Voronoi diagram in one single object.

Package QCA updated to version 0.5-3 with previous version 0.5-2 dated 2009-02-09

Author: Adrian Dusa
Title: Qualitative Comparative Analysis
Description: Performs the Quine-McCluskey algorithm for Qualitative Comparative Analysis, as described in Ragin, Charles C. 1987 "The Comparative Method. Moving beyond qualitative and quantitative strategies", Berkeley: University of California Press. In the classical approach it currently handles about 15 conditions and one outcome, but since version 0.4-5 the package has an enhanced, faster function that obtains the same exact solutions with a substantially lower memory consumption, and it handles even more causal conditions. The next versions of this algorithm will be oriented towards multi-value and fuzzy-set functions. Also, in the near future the current functions will deal with missing values in the data

New package ModelMap with initial version 1.1.11
Package: ModelMap
Type: Package
Title: Creates Random Forest and Stochastic Gradient Boosting Models, and applies them to GIS .img files to build detailed prediction maps.
Version: 1.1.11
Date: 2009-03-27
Depends: R (>= 2.8.1), randomForest, gbm, PresenceAbsence, rgdal
Author: Elizabeth Freeman, Tracey Frescino
Maintainer: Elizabeth Freeman
Description: This package will create sophisticated models of training data and validate the models with an independant test set, cross validation, or in the case of Random Forest Models, with Out OF Bag (OOB) predictions on the training data. It will creat graphs and tables of the model validation results. It will apply these models to GIS .img files of predictors to create detailed prediction surfaces. It will handle large predictor files for map making, by reading in the .img files in chuncks, and output to the .txt file the prediction for each data chunk, before reading the next chenk of data.

Package Animal updated to version 1.01 with previous version 1.0 dated 2009-03-18

Author: Matti Pastell
Title: Analyze time-coded animal behavior data
Description: The Animal package is a collection of functions for analyzing animal (including humans) behavior data originating from a variety of sources. The package has functions to analyze time coded behaviors from CowLog (open source software for coding behaviors from digital video) data files and observation files with similar format. Other features include hourly, daily, weekly and monthly summaries of time coded data, analysis of RIC (roughage intake system, Insentec automation) data files and labeling measurement data according to behavioral observations for e.g model building purpose.
