In this paper, we focus on resampling non-stationary weakly dependent point processes in two dimensions to make inference on the inhomogeneous K function (Baddeley et al., 2000). We provide theoretical results that show a consistency result of the bootstrap estimates of the variance as the observation region and resampling blocks increase in size. We present results of a simulation study that examines the performance of nominal 95% confidence intervals for the inhomogeneous K function obtained via our bootstrap procedure. The procedure is also applied to a rainforest dataset.
