    Abstract

    This paper shows an explanatory tool (a FORTRAN program linked to GIS software), called VCM (Variable Clumping Method), for detecting statistically significant `multi-level clumps' in the distribution of points. The multi-level clumps imply a set of clumps whose clumping radius varies from a small radius to a large radius (in spirits, VCM is similar to the K-function method). Compared with the ordinary (fixed radius) clumping method, VCM can detect overall significant clumps in the distribution of points.
