GLM Cross Validation

Description

K-fold and leave-one-out cross validation for GLM.

Usage

ecospat.cv.glm (glm.obj, K=10, cv.lim=10, jack.knife = FALSE, verbose = FALSE)

Arguments

glm.obj

Any calibrated GLM object with a binomial error distribution.

K

Number of folds. 10 is recommended; 5 for small data sets.

cv.lim

Minimum number of presences required to perform the K-fold cross-validation.

jack.knife

If TRUE, then the leave-one-out / jacknife cross-validation is performed instead of the 10-fold cross-validation.

verbose

Boolean indicating whether to print progress output during calculation. Default is FALSE.

Details

This function takes a calibrated GLM object with a binomial error distribution and returns predictions from a stratified 10-fold cross-validation or a leave-one-out / jack-knived cross-validation. Stratified means that the original prevalence of the presences and absences in the full dataset is conserved in each fold.

Value

Returns a dataframe with the observations (obs) and the corresponding predictions by cross-validation or jacknife.
