Let's say I have a set of points and I want to get an indication of their spatial distribution. That is, if all points are at one location a possible return value would be 0, whereas if all points are distributed evenly the return value would be 1.
The use case: I have two data set which cover the same area. I'm developing a tool to compare both sets with each other. I also want to include a rough indication of the point distribution to detect differences in the sets.
My program will be written in python using open source tools (so no arcgis).
