Pulls model results for the estimates of bin proportions per movement variable from the posterior distribution. This can be used for visualization of movement variable distribution for each behavior estimated.

get_behav_hist(dat, nburn, ngibbs, nmaxclust, var.names)



The list object returned by the LDA model (cluster_segments) or mixture model (cluster_obs). Used for extracting the element phi.


numeric. The length of the burn-in phase.


numeric. The total number of iterations of the MCMC chain.


numeric. The maximum number of clusters on which to attribute behaviors.


character. A vector of names used for each of the movement variables. Must be in the same order as were listed within the data frame returned by summarize_tsegs (if running LDA model).


A data frame that contains columns for bin number, behavioral state, proportion represented by a given bin, and movement variable name. This is displayed in a long format, which is easier to visualize using ggplot2.
