Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/GeoFunctions.R

Description

The function is based on on rgdal and rgeos packages and can be used with a shape file or an R spatial object (SpatialPolygonsDataFrame).

Usage

1
perimeter(spatobj = NULL, folder = NULL, shape = NULL)

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

Value

A perimeter vector
