Momocs: Momocs

Description Details Cheers References See Also


A complete toolkit for morphometrics, from data extraction to multivariate analyses. Most common 2D morphometrics approaches are included: outlines, open outlines, configurations of landmarks, traditional morphometrics, and facilities for data preparation, manipulation and visualization with a consistent grammar throughout. Momocs allows reproducible, complex morphometric analyses, paves the way for a pure open-source workflow in R, and other morphometrics approaches should be easy to plug in, or develop from, on top of this canvas.
