The website is http://www.spatstat.org (seems to be down for me, but that's probably me); the maintainers also read this list.

Don't use read.shape(), it returns a raw object that is difficult to handle. An example with readShapePoly:

library(maptools)
library(spatstat)
xx <- readShapePoly(system.file("shapes/sids.shp", package="maptools")[1]) .spatstat_check <- FALSE
NC <- as(as(xx, "SpatialPolygons"), "owin") plot(NC)
class(NC)
pts <- runifpoint(1000, NC)
plot(pts, pch=16, cex=0.5, add=TRUE)

The .spatstat_check is to turn off topology checking - please use only when necessary. In general the internal structures expect polygons not to touch or intersect, but the North Carolina counties do touch, so I have turned off the check.

There are more notes on Dylan Beaudette's site at:

Hope this helps,
