Has anyone made use of the new Stata 9 "procrustes" command for
analysis of shape?
A nice website describing shape analysis is at http://
life.bio.sunysb.edu/morph/, where there is quite a list of
specialized software. The "TPS" series by Rohlf is very good as is
the "IMP" series by Sheets.
There is also a nice book out for biologists describing shape
statistics and how to use some of these tools:
"Geometric morphometrics for biologists: A Primer".
R has a package called "shapes" that does the basics too.
