New Website

Geomorph users,

We have set up a new website:

http://geomorphr.github.io/geomorph/

The page links to the geomorph wiki, where the important content from this website is now available, and to the new user guide PDF (direct download).

This blogspot website will be retired at the end of August 2016.

New geomorph discussion forum

Geomorph users,

We have set up a new google groups discussion forum to handle user comments and questions regarding geomorph:

https://groups.google.com/d/forum/geomorph-r-package

Please sign up! 

This will replace the "comments" page on this blog, that simply was too archaic a system for providing help and discussion. If you posted a question to the comments page in the last two weeks, please repost in the forum.

We are also transitioning this website and the "tips & tricks" content to a new and improved setup. Please bear with us at this time of change and transition. We hope you like the new forum!

Best,

Emma and the geomorph team

This version is a small update of mainly bug fixes, smoothing out from version 3.0 released in January 2016.

Tips & Tricks 11: Using abind to Combine 3D Arrays

Geomorph users,

This month's tips and tricks blog post is a very quick one. Many users of geomorph may not be aware of the R package abind; a useful package to have installed because the function
abind() allows users to easily concatenate their 3D arrays of shape variables for analysis. Below I shall demonstrate its functionality.

New Function: procD.allometry

Geomorph users,

another great new addition to geomorph version 3.0 is the new function 
procD.allometry() which replaces the now defunct plot.allometry(). The reason for this is that it now offers many more options and more flexibility in model input.

New Feature: nested.update for procD.lm

Geomorph users,

another great new addition to geomorph version 3.0 is the new utility function
nested.update() designed to update Procrustes ANOVA (procD.lm()) objects for fixed effects with nested random effects (nested design). 

New Feature: geomorph.data.frame

Geomorph users,

one of the great new additions to geomorph version 3.0.0 is the new utility function geomorph.data.frame(). The output is a list similar to the R data frame to facilitate analysis of shape data in functions where covariates are required.
