About

This is an R package that fits the Nested Dirichlet Process to grouped distance data according to an Inhomogenous Poisson Process model. The primary target audience is researchers interested in the effect of built environment features (BEFs) on human health, though other applications are possible. See the package’s website for an introduction. Currently both normal and beta base measures are implemented. See the documentation for more information.
