# Distance Sampling Examples

Here you can find a set of worked examples (“vignettes”) demonstrating various aspects of distance sampling design and analysis using free software tools we have created and maintain. At present they focus on R packages; for examples using Distance for Windows see Chapter 3 (“Getting started”) of the Distance manual.

Examples below are based upon data sets available in the R packages dssd (for survey design) and Distance (for analysis of distance sampling surveys). All examples are provided as Rmarkdown documents. For information about using Rmarkdown files, consult this RStudio website.
