Modern Classes for Tracking and Movement Data

Modern classes for tracking and movement data, building on 'sf' spatial infrastructure, and early theoretical work from Turchin (1998, ISBN: 9780878938476), and Calenge et al. (2009) . Tracking data are series of locations with at least 2-dimensional spatial coordinates (x,y), a time index (t), and individual identification (id) of the object being monitored; movement data are made of trajectories, i.e. the line representation of the path, composed by steps (the straight-line segments connecting successive locations). 'sftrack' is designed to handle movement of both living organisms and inanimate objects.
