Please, learn to help yourself and use the tools provided. Also, don't post a new message to the list by replying to an existing thread it really messes up the archives!

Try, from within R:



RSiteSearch("spatial autocorrelation", restrict = "functions")

Both seem to produce suitable results.

You should also check out the spatial Task View on CRAN to get an overview of suitable packages out there that might do what you want. Choose a mirror near to you from here and then select Task Views in menu on the left.
