Prepare the Data
There are at least two files which you need to provide to the tool.
One is input data file, another is its corresponding station information
file. We provide a sample stationInfo.txt file and data file
under $YourHome/HMMTool-1.0/examples directory. The numbers
in stationInfo.txt file are TAB separated not SPACE.
The first column in the stationInfo.txt file is station number.
The second column is longitude with maximum four decimals. The third
column is latitude with maximum four decimals in degrees. Do not use
scientific notations for numbers, use decimals. This file should be
placed in the same directory as the input data file.
Specify Main Options
No. of Stations, No. of Sequences and Length
of Sequences values have to match the input data. User can
freely specify No. of Hidden States. The bigger this
number, the slower the program runs. If Print to Screen
is checked, it will print out results to the screen. See detailed explaination
