Dear all,

I'm also working on detection function with multiple year. I'm trying to do a single detection function with all my data across the years.
I fixed the problem of unconsistency by setting 1 value of area per year. I don't have the error message anymore.
But, when I compute the ds function, I have 0 for all my density and abundance estimators and I can't find why.
I tried to calculate them with dht function, and I discovered this error :
"Must specify obs.table because Sample.Label and/or Region.Label fields not contained in data"
This is very strange, since they are in my data, and are found when I take the years individually.

Thank you by advance for your response,

Best regards,

Floriane Cornué

Thanks for your question.  Are you willing to send to me your data (or a subset I could use to diagnose the problem) and the code you have used.  If you send it off-list, I will see if I can understand the situation giving your problems.

Dear all,

The problem has been solved by removing the object field. It was also possible to fill the object field with numbers from 1 to the number of detections. 

Thank you very much Eric to help me with this problem.
