Software Downloads for Spatial Survey Design and Analysis

Software for R, Software for S-PLUS

Software for developing spatial survey designs and subsequent statistical analyses of data from those designs is available for download. The survey design and analysis software is in the form of a package (a library of functions) that is used in the R software environment (http://www.r-project.org). The statistical analysis portion of that package previously was available for use in the S-PLUS software environment (http://www.insightful.com), but support for S-PLUS versions has been discontinued.

Software for R

The EMAP Design Team developed a single library that enables users to: (1) complete site selection for spatial survey designs based on GRTS spatial balance algorithms as well as those based on simple random algorithms and (2) conduct population estimation for data collected using those designs. The spsurvey library implements these activities. Other software that is necessary for using spsurvey is provided (main R software program and another R library) as well as a text editor (Tinn-R) that is specially designed to work with R. Instructions on how to install R, the libraries, and Tinn-R are given. A user guide is provided as well as several examples to help the user learn how to select sites and analyze the subsequent data collected. All changes to spsurvey are documented and should be consulted.

The EMAP Design Team has developed and tested this version of spsurvey using R_2.13.0. We have not verified that the current version of spsurvey is compatible with prior versions of the R Statistical Software. Use of R version 2.13.0 is highly recommended and is available for download above or from the Comprehensive R Network (http://cran.fhcrc.org/)

Spatial survey design examples are available to aid users in the use of spsurvey. Examples are given for points, lines, and polygons (i.e., finite, linear, and area). All information required to do the survey designs is given in the zip files.

Software for S-PLUS

The statistical analysis portion of the spsurvey library is also available as an S-PLUS library named psurvey.analysis. The spatial survey design algorithms are not available for S-PLUS. Two versions of the psurvey.analysis library are maintained to be compatible with different releases of S-PLUS. Note that some of the psurvey.analysis libraries for earlier S-PLUS versions may not have all the functionality as the current library.
