I have created the evgam R package for generalised additive extreme-value models. It's currently under development, but source code is provided with some examples.

#### ppgam

Theo Economou and I developed similar - yet slightly more basic - R code for generalised additive point process models, which accompanies Youngman and Economou (2017). Source code is provided with some examples.
