This function calculates an occurrence distribution from
telemetry data and a continuous-time movement model.
2D timeseries telemetry data represented as a
Optional additional bandwidth matrix for future use.
Number of temporal grid points per median timestep.
Number of grid points along each axis, relative to the average diffusion (per median timestep) from a stationary point.
Optional grid specification via
Velocity correlation threshold for skipping gaps.
Maximum absolute gap size (in seconds) for Kriging interpolation. If left
Buffer the observation period, according to the minimum gap specified by

cor.min can produce an empty range with fractal movement models, the larger of the two rules is employed for interpolation.
buffer=TRUE, then the data are also extrapolated according to the minimum of the two rules (
dt.max) which is limited to cases where persistence of motion is modeled.
