From: Is there a single best estimator? Selection of home range estimators using area-under-the-curve

Figure 4

Example of area-under-the-curve showing differences in isopleths for 8 estimators of home range for Florida panther 185 collected with concurrent Very High Frequency (VHF) technology in 2011. Movement-based kernel density estimator (MKDE) was not able to be estimated with VHF technology so was replaced with location-based kernel density estimator using least squares cross-validation smoothing (LSCV). Location-based kernel density estimator using hplug-in smoothing (PKDE), location-based kernel density estimator using href smoothing (LKDE), Brownian Bridge Movement Model (BBMM), polygon-derived single-linkage cluster analysis (SLCA), polygon-derived characteristic hull (CHAR), polygon-derived local convex hull (LOCO), and dynamic Brownian Bridge Movement Model (dBBM). Volume contours reflects color scheme for isopleths from 0 to 100% (bottom left) and an example ROC curve (bottom right).
