rotations: Tools for Working with Rotation Data

This package implements tools for working with rotational data: it allows simulation from the most commonly used distributions on SO(3), it includes methods for different Bayes, mean and median type estimators for the central orientation of a sample, it provides confidence and credible regions for the central orientation based on those estimators and it includes a novel visualization technique for rotation data.
