A comparison of the QCPA framework to other existing pattern analyses and frameworks. For patternize see (Belleghem et al., 2017). For PAT-GEOM see Chan et al. (2018). For PAVO see Maia et al. (2013). For NaturePatternMatch see Stoddard et al. (2014). For Colourvision see Gawryszewski (2018). We would also like to point out approaches by Pike (2018) which operates on a similar principle to NaturePatternMatch and Weller & Westneat (2018) which shares similarities with PAVO.
