Techniques for analysing three-dimensional spatial point patterns are demonstrated on data from a confocal microscope recording the locations of cells in three dimensions. New computational techniques are proposed for edge corrections and empty space measurement. A novel feature of the data is replication and nesting in a sampling design: multiple spatial patterns were observed from each of several animals. For this we develop a ratio regression approach.
