This paper introduces nonparametric estimation methods for spatial point processes satisfying a particular renewal property. Martingale methods yield a unified approach for renewal processes in both one and two dimensions, and can be used for both synchronous and asynchronous data. In each case, we obtain martingale estimators of the avoidance probabilities that characterize the renewal process. Asymptotic properties of the estimators are studied analytically and empirically.
