distcenter(spatobj = NULL, folder = NULL, shape = NULL, 
center = 1, distin = 'm',  distout = 'm')

Arguments

spatobj

- a spatial object (SpatialPolygonsDataFrame) containing geographic information

folder

- a character vector with the folder (directory) name indicating where the shapefile with the geographic information is located.

shape

- a character vector with the name of the shapefile (without the .shp extension) which contains the geographic information

center

- the row number of the center

distin

- input metric conversion, based on measurements package and includes conversions from 'm', 'km', 'inch', 'ft', 'yd', 'mi', 'naut_mi', etc.

distout

- output metric conversion, based on measurements package and includes conversions to 'm', 'km', 'inch', 'ft', 'yd', 'mi', 'naut_mi', etc.

Value

A vector with the distance to the center's centroid
