A test of uniformity on the shape space Sigma(m)(k) is presented, together with modifications of the test statistic which bring its null distribution close to the large-sample asymptotic distribution. The asymptotic distribution under suitable local alternatives to uniformity is given. A family of distributions on Sigma(m)(k) is proposed, which is suitable for modelling shapes given by landmarks which are almost collinear. (C) 2003 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
