Construct Polygons Summarising the Location and Variability of Point Sets

Various applications in invasive species biology, conservation biology, epidemiology and elsewhere involve sampling of sets of 2D points from a posterior distribution. The number of such point sets may be large, say 1000 or 10000. This package facilitates visualisation of such output by constructing seven nested polygons representing the location and variability of the point sets. This can be used, for example, to visualise the range boundary of a species, and uncertainty in the location of that boundary.
