The spatPomp package

What is this package?

The spatPomp package provides facilities for inference on panel data using spatiotemporal partially-observed Markov process (SpatPOMP) models. To do so, it relies on and extends a number of facilities that the pomp package provides for inference on time series data using partially-observed Markov process (POMP) models.

Why use spatPomp?

The spatPomp package concerns models consisting of a collection of interacting units. The methods in spatPomp may be applicable whether or not these units correspond to spatial locations.
