Convert a three-dimensional array of landmark coordinates into a 2-dimensional matrix
An array (p x k x n) containing landmark coordinates for a set of specimens
This function converts a (p x k x n) array of landmark coordinates into a 2-dimensional matrix. The latter format of the shape data is useful for performing subsequent statistical analyses in R (e.g., PCA, MANOVA, PLS, etc.). Row labels are preserved if included in the original array.
Function returns a two-dimensional matrix of dimension (n x [p x k]), where rows represent specimens and columns represent variables.
