edm_nearest
calculates the shortest euclidean distance found for
every point of one matrix among those of a second. In other words, if
m1, m2
have n
rows, the result will be the shortest distance
for the first point of m1
to any point of m2
and so on,
n
times. This function is used internally but may be of interest for
other analyses.
1  edm_nearest(m1, m2, full = FALSE)

m1 
The first 
m2 
The second 
full 

So far this function is quite time consumming since it performs n \times n euclidean distance computation. If one wishes to align two (or more shapes) Procrustes surimposition may provide a better solution.
If full
is TRUE
, returns a list
with two
components: d
which is for every point of m1
the shortest
distance found between it and any point in m2
, and pos
the
(m2
) row indices of these points. Otherwise returns d
as a
numeric vector of the shortest distances.
