crustCover R Package

The Bowker Lab has developed an R package to characterize and quantify biocrust cover with photo data. This package is called crustCover, and is an adaptation of the methods in Fischer et al. (2012), which describes techniques to use visible light cameras in conjunction with a lens filter to calculate NDVI. This package is a work in progress, and input from the biocrust community on bugs encountered or ideas for improvements would be greatly appreciated. Please send reports or request for improvements to kd498@nau.edu.
