- spBayes IS HERE!!!. This software is maintained by Andrew Finley at Michigan State University.
spBayes is an R package that promises to perform Bayesian hierarchical modelling for spatial data sets. It is hosted on the R-package repository (or your favourite mirror) as a contributed extension package. Installing spBayes is similar to installing any other R-package and instructions for Windows and Linux can be found here.
