Tools for working with rotational data, including simulation from the most commonly used distributions on SO(3), methods for different Bayes, mean and median type estimators for the central orientation of a sample, confidence/credible regions for the central orientation based on those estimators and a novel visualization technique for rotation data. Most recently, functions to identify potentially discordant (outlying) values have been added.
