The R Package HDSpatialScan for the Detection of Clusters of Multivariate and Functional Data using Spatial Scan Statistics

This paper introduces the R package HDSpatialScan. This package allows users to easily apply spatial scan statistics to real-valued multivariate data or both univariate and multivariate functional data. It also permits plotting the detected clusters and to summarize them. In this article the methods are presented and the use of the package is illustrated through examples on environmental data provided in the package.
