Create random folds for cross validation.

randomFolds(data, k, only_presence = FALSE, seed = NULL)



SWD object that will be used to train the model.


integer. Number of fold used to create the partition.


logical, if TRUE the random folds are created only for the presence locations and all the background locations are included in each fold, used manly for presence-only methods, default is FALSE.


integer. The value used to set the seed for the fold partition, default is NULL.


list with two matrices, the first for the training and the second for the testing dataset. Each column of one matrix represents a fold with TRUE for the locations included in and FALSE excluded from the partition.


When only_presence = FALSE, the proportion of presence and absence is preserved.
