samc 1.1.0 2020-05-19

  • Added support for the use vectors of time steps in most short-term metrics. It is more computationally efficient and ergonomic to do this rather than calculating short-term metrics for each individual time step. Some key points:
    • When vector inputs are used for time steps, the result is contained in a list
    • The names of the entries in the list are character versions of the corresponding time step values
    • Time step vectors must consist of ordered positive integers with no duplicate values
    • Time step vector inputs have not been added for short-term metrics that return dense matrices
  • Updated the map() function to support list inputs generated by the short-term metrics. The result is a list of RasterLayers
  • Updated the Temporal Analysis and Animations vignettes to incorporate time step vectors
  • Created a Gitter community for package support. Gitter badges on the README and home pages can be used to access it.
  • Updated the package citation info to refer to Marx et al. (2020, DOI: 10.1111/ecog.04891)
