Introduction to Spherical Densities in R

It always happens… I get interested in what I think will be a small data project to scratch some itch and end up down a deep rabbit hole. In this case, a passing interest in the geographic distribution of some samples (more on that in a future post) led to a deep dive into spherical distributions and densities. DISCLAIMER: While I know a thing or two, there’s a reasonable chance I got some things wrong or at very least there are certainly more efficient ways to go about things.
