I'm looking to try to take the data from here in the population/homerange image. and make it so I can put in any number from 1 to whatever and get the homerange that falls on the 3 number sets given.
The 3 number sets are...
10 pop | 5.6 sq km
50 pop | 18.8 sq km
100 pop | 31.6 sq km
supposedly there is a .75 scaling exponent, but I don't see the correlation.
I tried looking around to find an example of what to do, but I can't find a simple easy to understand answer and the wikipedia entry on the subject just looks like a garbled mess to me.
Let's put it in a simple form:
H = Ps
where H is the home range, P is the population and S is the scaling exponent.
var scalingExp = 0.75; console.log(Math.pow(10, scalingExp).toFixed(1)); console.log(Math.pow(50, scalingExp).toFixed(1)); console.log(Math.pow(100, scalingExp).toFixed(1));
