spAndBndConversion: Convert sp and bnd format into each other

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Convert geographical information objects of class "SpatialPolygons" (or specializations) from R-package sp to objects of class "bnd" from R-package BayesX and vice versa.

Usage

2
sp2bnd(spObject, regionNames, height2width, epsilon)
bnd2sp(bndObject)

Arguments

spObject

object of class "SpatialPolygons" (or specializations)

regionNames

character vector of region names (parallel to the Polygons list in spObject), defaults to the IDs

height2width

ratio of total height to width, defaults to the bounding box values

epsilon

how much can two polygons differ (in maximum squared Euclidean distance) and still match each other?, defaults to machine precision

bndObject

object of class "bnd"

Value

Equivalent object in the other format.

## bnd to sp:
germany <- read.bnd(system.file("examples/germany2001.bnd", package="BayesX"))
spGermany <- bnd2sp(germany)

## plot the result together with the neighborhood graph
library(sp)
plot(spGermany)
library(spdep)
nbGermany <- poly2nb(spGermany)
plot(nbGermany, coords=coordinates(spGermany), add=TRUE)

## example with one region inside another
spExample <- spGermany[c("7211", "7235"), ]
plot(spExample)
plot(poly2nb(spExample), coords=coordinates(spExample), add=TRUE)

## now back from sp to bnd:
bndGermany <- sp2bnd(spGermany)
drawmap(map=bndGermany)

## compare names and number of polygons
stopifnot(identical(names(bndGermany),
                    names(germany)),
          identical(length(bndGermany),
                    length(germany)))

## compare contains-relations
surrounding <- attr(bndGermany, "surrounding")
whichInner <- which(sapply(surrounding, length) > 0L)
bndContainsData <- data.frame(inner=names(bndGermany)[whichInner],
                              outer=unlist(surrounding))

surrounding <- attr(germany, "surrounding")
whichInner <- which(sapply(surrounding, length) > 0L)
originalContainsData <- data.frame(inner=names(germany)[whichInner],
                                   outer=unlist(surrounding))

stopifnot(all(bndContainsData[order(bndContainsData$inner), ] ==
              originalContainsData[order(originalContainsData$inner), ]))
