This report tabulates moments, moment constants and, except for 3 below, the cumulative distribution function of 1 distance between two points randomly and independently placed in a line segment, disk or sphere, 2 distance between two points randomly and independently placed in a rectangle, and 3 distance from a selected point to the nearest point in a collection of n 1 points randomly and independently placed in a square. The results of part 3 provide measures for analyzing the boundary bias that occurs in map analysis based on spacing measures, and a procedure is described that is sometimes effective in eliminating boundary bias.
