[Biomod-commits] Weight in ensemble forecasting

Our mistake, actually not.
The weights are calculated on the final model (100%) if you do not have any repetition (like in your case).
We are changing that.
Priority will be given to "Independent data". Then, cross-validation, then final model.
At the moment, we do not check whether or not independent dataset have been used.
We'll keep you updated on the package building but everything should work back during the day.

> Dear Kumar,
>> Ensemble.Forecasting. How the software computes ensemble probabilities is not clear in the manual. But somewhere I came across the information that the weights are based on cross validated evaluation score. Since I do not have such score, the function should not work.
> No, it works. This is mostly because so few people have independent dataset that by default we wrote that the weights are based on the cross-validation results. Indeed, when you have independent dataset, the weight are calculate based on the scores on the independent evaluation.

>> ANN CTA GAM GBM GLM MARS FDA RF SRE
>> PA1 0 0 0.1729 0.2766 0.108 0 0 0.4425 0
>> Where are these weights coming from? These numbers do not match with any column in Evaluation.results (after rescaling to make the total =1).
> It depends on the weighting scheme you use (i.e. decay). Please look at the "decay" explanation in the help of Ensemble.Forecasting.
> If you set decay= 'proportional', you should retrieve easily the weights with the evaluation scores (as they are proportional).
