Many observed spatial point patterns contain points placed roughly on line segments. Point patterns exhibiting such structures can be found for example in archaeology (locations of bronze age graves in Denmark) and geography (locations of mountain tops). We consider a particular class of point processes whose realizations contain such linear structures. Such a point process is constructed sequentially by placing one point at a time.
The points are placed in such a way that new points are often placed close to previously placed points, and the points form roughly line shaped structures. We consider simulations of this model and compare with real data.
