`shipshape`

The package consists of two main functions: `shape_proc_distance`

for calculating Procrustes distance metrics, and `shape_elastic_distance`

for calculating Elastic distance metrics.

To install the latest version directly from Github, please use:

`devtools::install_github("goutham1220/shipshape")`

In order to use the `shape_proc_distance`

and `shape_elastic_distance`

functions, your data should be contained in a 3-dimensional array.
Each object should occupy a separate page of the array, like so:

```
, , 1
[,1] [,2]
[1,] 1 13
[2,] 2 14
[3,] 3 15
, , 2
[,1] [,2]
[1,] 4 16
[2,] 5 17
[3,] 6 18
, , 3
[,1] [,2]
[1,] 7 19
[2,] 8 20
[3,] 9 21
```

If your data is not formatted like this, use the `data_split`

function to automatically convert your data into a 3D array like so:

`data_split(test_data, 100)`

With this in mind, if your data was contained in a 3D array `arr`

, the functions can be called like this:

`shape_proc_distance(arr, type = "full")`

`shape_elastic_distance(arr, mode = "C")`

The functions will then calculate all nC2 combinations of distances and return the distances, properly labeled, as a vector, like so:

```
1 2 1 3 2 3
0.1974612 0.3008154 0.3186260
```
