Software by F. James Rohlf
Freely distributed software:
Morphometric software distributed via the Stony
Brook Morphometrics www site.
- tpsBias: Explore bias
and error in estimating average shape.
- tpsDig: Digitize coordinates
of landmarks and capture outlines.
- tpsPLS: Study covariation
between a shape and a set of variables or between two shapes.
- tpsPower: Estimates statistical
power for testing difference between two mean shapes..
- tpsRelw: Relative warps
- tpsRegr: Multivariate
regression of shape onto one or more independent variables.
- tpsSmall: Test whether
shape variation is small enough so that tangent space approximations can be
used (almost always true)..
- tpsSplin: Computes thin-plate
- tpsSuper: GLS superimposition,
image unwarping and image averaging.
- tpsSurfPlot: Utility
to show results of tpsPower and tpsBias as surface plots (but just for triangles).
- tpsTree: Fit shapes to
a hierarchical tree.
- tpsTri: Explore statistics
of shape for triangles.
- tpsUtil: Utility program
useful when working with tps files..
