sample.empirical (Sample From Empirical Distribution)

Draws samples from an empirical distirbution and writes the sample to the output window


This tool draws samples from an empirical distribution. It is primarily intended as a testing tool to verify that the distributions you have specified will produce the desired result when used in conjunction with the movement modelling commands, like movement.simplecrw. Please refer to the ‘Distributions’ appendix for detailed instructions on how to specify an empirical distribution.
