The Spatstat Package
This is a summary of the features of
spatstat, a package in
for the statistical analysis of spatial point patterns.
spatstat is a package for the statistical analysis
of spatial data. Currently, it deals mainly with the analysis of
patterns of points in the plane. The points may carry `marks',
and the spatial region in which the points were recorded
may have arbitrary shape.
The package supports
- creation, manipulation and plotting of point patterns
- exploratory data analysis
- simulation of point process models
- parametric model-fitting
- residuals and diagnostic plots
Rlanguage, and are fitted using a single function
demo(spatstat) for an overall demonstration
of the package.
An introduction to the package is available in the
Intro.pdf in the
doc directory supplied in the
installation of the package.
The package is described more fully in the paper by Baddeley and Turner (2005a), available online.
