I have two excel files one containing
a set of values of a markers with their positions (MARKERID-KS.xls) and
another with a set of values of regions with their positions on a map (MAPID-KS.xls), along with their color intensity.
Please see the attached excel files.

I want to do a statistical test to this to determine if the relationship of the distributions of these two datasets are significant or not ie Marker to Map(this in relation to the color intensity as given in the map). I want to do a Kolmogorov smirnov test, KS-Test (or please advice me if there is any other test that I need could use) on this sample to determine the D Value and to find if there is significance between the two datasets. Can someone here please advice me on to how I can perfom this. If, there a straight forward way to perform this test with the data test using R or Matlab (I havent used Matlab but could try).
