Description

Combine measurements associated with events that occur in the same polygon.

Usage

1
combineEvents (events, locs, FUN, ..., bdryOK = TRUE)

Arguments

events

EventData with at least four columns (EID, X, Y, Z).

locs

LocationSet usually resulting from a call to findPolys.

FUN

a function that produces a scalar from a vector (e.g., mean, sum).

...

optional arguments for FUN.

bdryOK

Boolean value; if TRUE, include boundary points.

Details

This function combines measurements associated with events that occur in the same polygon. Each event (EID) has a corresponding measurement Z. The locs data frame (usually output from findPolys) places events within polygons. Thus, each polygon (PID, SID) determines a set of events within it, and a corresponding vector of measurements Zv. The function returns FUN(Zv), a summary of measurements within each polygon.

Value

PolyData with columns PID, SID (if in locs), and Z.
