Amacrine Cell Data
These data record a bivariate pattern of chlinergic amacrine cells within the
retina of a rabbit. I acquired them from Prof A Hughes (Melbourne). For a
general description, see chapter 1 of Diggle (2003, Statistical Analysis of
Spatial Point Patterns, second edition).
The observation window for the data is the rectangle (0,a) X (0,1) where
the unit of distance is 662um. There is some doubt about the precise
value of a. A reasonable choice in my opinion would be 1060/662, or
aproximately 1.6. There is some old evidence that 1070/662 SHOULD be
correct, but this would leave a suspiciously empty border along one
edge of the rectangle.
