1. Apologies for the lousy presentation of the data and thank you for your
feedback. I promise it will not happen again.
2. Thank you
3. Yes, exactly!
4. Exactly what I wanted without much hassle. Thank you very much. Time to
explore the package 'spatstat'.
How can I show the Dirichlet tile names (i.e. 1,2,3,....,8) in the plot?
Cheers,
Mano
