# [R-sig-eco] as.ltraj and fpt from AdeHabitat

```Dear Sam,
Maybe one idea is that XY units are in decimal degrees but you asked for
radii=seq(300,1000,length=30), which seem to be in meters. As fpt() uses
the same units as yaya coords, it seems that it returns FPT for radii
from 300 to 1000 decimal degrees, possibly NAs... It seems that you need
to project your data in m or km before using fpt().
Be aware also that FPT needs to be calculated every /d/ constant
distance (not raw relocations) as mentionned in Fauchald & Tveraa
(2003), so use redisltraj() before fpt().
