Extract breakpoints for each animal ID


Extract breakpoints for each animal ID


get_breakpts(dat, MAP.est)



A list of lists where animal IDs are separated as well as the breakpoints estimated for each iteration of the MCMC chain. This is stored within breakpts of model results returned after running segment_behavior.


numeric. A vector of values at which the maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimate was identified for each of the animal IDs as returned by get_MAP. These must be in the same order as the data for the IDs supplied to segment_behavior().


A data frame where breakpoints are returned per animal ID within each row. For animal IDs that have fewer breakpoints than the maximum number that were estimated, NA values are used as place holders for these breakpoints that do not exist.
