Compute perpendicular distances and projections onto line

Description

Calculates perpendicular distances of a point process contained within a strip to the center line of the strip they are contained in. It also computes the positions of the objects projected onto the line. This is the inverse of the offset.points function.

Usage

1
dist2line(object.ppp, line.ends)

Arguments

object.ppp

point process for observations in a strip

line.ends

ends of line x0,y0,x1,y1

Value

distVals

vector of perpendicular distances

projection

dataframe of projected locations on the line
