I'm a biologist, mostly working in theoretical aspects of animal populations as well as solving 1001 other little problems. I spend my days in the coding dungeon and my tool of trade is R. I find it very useful for running simulations, doing data manipulation, statistics and shooting oneself in the foot (fortunes() pun intended). I am no stranger to field biology, where I mostly work with plants, butterflies and hoverflies.

I am also a PhD candidate in biostatistics at University of Ljubljana. I work with capture-mark recapture techniques and I fancy simulations, among other things.

comment relationship between sp package in R; mapwindow; ArcGIS/Quantum GIS
Have you considered SAGA-GIS? It hooks up to R pretty easily.

comment Problems with NA values when reading .DEM file with R 'raster' package in Windows
I got different results in different versions of raster (see my comments above) so I'm not totally convinced it's GDAL per se.

I got different values on raster_1.8-12 (but identical to yours on 1.9-12) on winXP.

Can you include your sessionInfo() in your post?

Too bad I didn't save the random seed generator number...

@whuber For this case, the median and mean centroids overlap. I will leave the figure but will modify the R code to reflect the correct answer.

This is getting more and more interesting. Thank you for your answers. I'm looking into the matter.
