Why it was developed?
This package currently exists in a development version on GitHub. To use the package, you need to place it directly on GitHub using the install_githubfunction devtools.
Why we are sharing it?
The package can be used to calculate spatial first differences (SFD) or spatial double differences (SDD). For example, you can calculate SFD on the variables of interest using the SFD_varsfunction.
