quantity_allocation_disagreement now takes in the use_distance parameter which is FALSE
by default. This allows the model to compute the minimum total distance between observed
and simulated infestations (@ChrisJones, #130).
pops now take in
network_min_distance, network_max_distance, and network_filename parameters these are
used when the anthropogenic_kernel_type = "network". This allows directed spread along
a network such as a railroad (@ChrisJones and @wenzeslaus, #131)
validate now takes the variable point_file and uses it to calculate statistics based on the
point_file in addition to the raster file also calculates new measures of model performance
accuracy, precision, recall, and specificity (@ChrisJones, #124).
calibrate no longer uses success_metrics and checks parameters as these are both handled
internally by auto-updating if the values are too far of in the first generation. This
makes for a simpler and faster user experience (@ChrisJones, #130).
validate no longer uses success_metrics parameter but now has the added parameters
use_rmse and use_distance that are used in
This allows for a more intuitive user interface (@ChrisJones, #130).
quantity_allocation_disagreement variable configuration changed to use_configuration
to be more consistent with variable names. (@ChrisJones, #130).
pops_multirun can now use variable write_output = "all_simulations" to write out
susceptible, exposed, and infected rasters from all simulations. This will allow for a
future update where simulations can easily be started from previous simulation outputs.
