Hi Vincent,
I might help only with the data. In the last years I've started trying to publish data often together with papers.


You'll find data in (if I remember well) nts, morphologika and MorphoJ formats in the online first paper on the Wainer's rule (out now in Hystrix). That a fairly big 3D dataset (1300 something specimens). There are more data in different formats also in the Viscosi & Cardini, 2011, paper (2D leaves). There are more data also in the two papers on mirroring one-side only data (from structures with object symmetry - published in 2016-17; both 2D and 3D landmarks).

Almost all those papers and data should be easy to find using the links in my webpage: https://sites.google.com/site/alcardini/home/pubs

If I ever manage to find the time, I will try to start adding data also for some of the older stuff I published (as long as I am the owner of the data or the coauthors agree). That will take time, as I am not good at archiving data.

I am sending this to morphmet as well, as others asked me about data recently.

Good luck with the new package.
Cheers

Andrea

Dear morphmet,

I'm writing a small R package, Modown <https://github.com/vbonhomme/Modown>, that defines a text-based (I'm aware of their limits), minimalist, readable by both humans and machines and provides utilities to manipulate it. It started as a personal need when sweating and spoiling time exporting from/to various existing morphometrics file format (mainly for Momocs hotline) and I'm willing to tackle this with this package. Not sure it would be useful elsewhere but it sure will be by my side.

I write to you today to ask you if you:
1- think I have forgotten a case in the current five rules <https://github.com/vbonhomme/Modown> 2- are keen to share some data. A very small fraction of datasets or even a single complete shape would be perfect. I'm particularly interested in exotic format. Being a newbie to everything outside outlines, all text-based formats including .tps, .nts, .xml and others are exotic to me so every single contribution will be warmly welcomed. Unless if you're keen to do it and explicitely write it to me, I won't, of course, don't share them, not even for tests or whatever.

Due to its "essentialist" nature, Modown file format could be used to import any kind of morphometrics data (making request #1 important) into R (and thus everywhere) and as a intermediate step when converting from one format to another (if request #2 allows decent testing).

Besides my eternal gratitude you will be duly acknowledged in the package (unless you dont want).

All the best from southern France,

Vincent
