An R package for handling Motus automated radio-telemetry data.

See the motus package site for detailed usage information.


The easiest way to install motus is from Birds Canada’s R-Universe:

                 repos = c(birdscanada = '',
                           CRAN = ''))

If you want to check out work-in-progress, you can install the development branches (betaX and sandbox) using remotes.

install.packages("remotes")                     # if don't already have it
remotes::install_github("motusWTS/motus@beta3") # the beta branch for v3+
