Produces a bamdata object that can be passed to bam_estimate function

bam_data(w, s = NULL, dA = NULL, Qhat, max_xs = 30L, seed = NULL)

w | Matrix (or data frame) of widths: time as columns, space as rows |
---|---|

s | Matrix of slopes: time as columns, space as rows |

dA | Matrix of area above base area: time as columns, space as rows |

Qhat | Vector of Q estimates. Needed to create prior on Q. |

max_xs | Maximum number of cross-sections to allow in data. Used to reduce sampling time. Defaults to 30. |

seed | RNG seed to use for sampling cross-sections, if nx > max_xs. |
