With reference to the Yang Chang skull group query: I am a devotee of Analysis of Dispersion combined with Factorial Design of CR Rao (1965). The model is Y = XB Y is a n by 3k+c matrix of n rows of k xyz coordinates plus c covariates such as size and weight covariates. X is a n by p design

Re: [MORPHMET] Mahalanobis distance in cluster analysis of shape variables

I can not speak directly to why it is frequently used in GM cluster analysis but I would like to mention how I look at Mahalanobis distance based on its calculation. Mahalanobis distance is not a pure distance metric like Euclidian or Manhattan distance, as you have stated it is

[MORPHMET] tpsDig on a Mac using wine

Dear Jim and Morphmet, I just want to comment on using tpsDig on a Mac. tps Dig is my go-to software for 2-D landmark digitizing of images. To digitize I would previously have to use one of my PCs in my lab which was often a pain. I was reluctant to use several of the PC-on-your-Mac options

[MORPHMET] Use of tpsDig2 template mode on dragonfly wings

Dear tpsDig users, After a time away from using tpsDig I am back digitizing Sympetrum (Medowhawk dragonfly) wings with tpsDig2 … with a twist. I am doing it on a Mac using wine, the PC emulator. It works well but I am in need of one of the old functions called template-mode. In the 'old
