Please find below a brief summary of a new programme for spatial
analysis, which has been designed with neuronal positioning in mind.

SA3D: Spatial Analysis 3D

Dan Lofgreen, Mary Raven, Stephen Eglen, Ben Reese

Spatial Analysis 3D is a user-friendly program that allows statistical
and visual manipulations of real and simulated three-dimensional
spatial point patterns. Examples of the types of analyses performed
include those derived from the Delaunay tessellation associated with
such spatial point patterns, and those associated with the correlation
of such point patterns, including autocorrelation analysis and its
derived density recovery profile, as well as the related K, F, and
G-functions. The stimulus for the development of Spatial Analysis 3D
has been the study of neuronal positioning within the central nervous
system, but many other applications in science, engineering,
statistics and mathematics should benefit from this suite of programs.

The program is freely available from the website above.  The program
is written in Matlab and C.  Matlab version 7 is required.

Baddeley for his code to compute K,F,G functions.
