Spaniel includes a series of tools to aid the quality control and analysis of Spatial Transcriptomics data. The package contains functions to create either a Seurat object or SingleCellExperiment from a count matrix and spatial barcode file and provides a method of loading a histologial image into R. The spanielPlot function allows visualisation of metrics contained within the S4 object overlaid onto the image of the tissue.
