This internship involved the development of a graphical user interface between two software packages, AD Model Builder (ADMB) and the statistics package R. The ADMB software was used to fit models and then R was used to graph them. ADMB generates a large amount of data that must be graphed in order to obtain representative results. The interface developed allows an ADMB program to output data in a format readable by R. The interface also contains a set of graphic functions in R that formulate many common graphs.

The benefits to NOAA and the Population Dynamics Team is an improved graphics function. This internship increased familiarity in general with scientific programming and particularly with the R language.
