Description

Also called the Feret's diameter, the longest distance between two points of the shape provided.

Usage

1
coo_calliper(coo, arr.ind = FALSE)

Arguments

coo

a matrix of (x; y) coordinates.

arr.ind

logical, see below.

Value

numeric, the centroid size. If arr.ind=TRUE, a list with the calliper length $length and the two points $arr.ind. If arr.ind=TRUE, only the calliper length as a numeric.
