phylin: Spatial Interpolation of Genetic Data

The spatial interpolation of genetic distances between samples is based on a modified kriging method that accepts a genetic distance matrix and generates a map of probability of lineage presence. This package also offers tools to generate a map of potential contact zones between groups with user-defined thresholds in the tree to account for old and recent divergence. Additionally, it has functions for IDW interpolation using genetic data and midpoints.
