Tools for a wavelet-based approach to analyzing spatial synchrony, principally in ecological data. Some tools will be useful for studying community synchrony. See, for instance, Sheppard et al (2016)

This repository provides tools for analyzing synchrony of time series from a timescale-specific viewpoint. The tools have so far principally been useful for studying spatial synchrony of population dynamics in ecology, but may be useful for a variety of other applications.
In addition to the documentation, see the vignette, which is the best way to get started.
For a quick install of this development version: devtools::install_github(repo="reumandc/wsyn"). The install_github function, by default, will not install the vignette. There is an option for installing vignettes (build_vignettes=TRUE), but it seems finicky. You can also clone the repository and use devtools::install() to install from your local clone. The build_vignettes=TRUE option seems to work better for devtools::install than it does for devtools::install_github. If you have trouble, please email me.
Some of the more intensive tests are skipped unless there is a variable in the global environment called RUN_INTENSIVE_TESTS which is TRUE. This is so CRAN checks will run in the allowed time on CRAN servers, and was requested by CRAN.
