Class structure

One product of our Tuesday meeting was a general outline of the class structure for the project.
  • Parser class
    • functions to parse tab or comma delimited PBDB files
  • Occurrence class
    • The fundamental data of our analysis, contains information about each fossil occurrence
  • Lineage class
    • Summarizes a group of occurrences of a single lineage, in our program this will be equivalent to genus-level resolution
  • NodeOfInterest class
    • (this may need to be split up into several classes)
