dup.coords: Locates duplicated coordinates

dup.coordsR Documentation

Locates duplicated coordinates


This funtions takes an object with 2-D coordinates and returns the positions of the duplicated coordinates. Also sets a method for duplicated


dup.coords(x, ...)
## Default S3 method:
dup.coords(x, ...)
## S3 method for class 'geodata'
dup.coords(x, incomparables, ...)
## S3 method for class 'geodata'
duplicated(x, incomparables, ...)



a two column numeric matrix or data frame.


unused. Just for compatibility with the generic function duplicated.


arguments passed to sapply. If simplify = TRUE (default) results are returned as an array if possible (when the number of replicates are the same at each replicated location)


Function and methods returns NULL if there are no duplicates locations.

Otherwise, the default method returns a list where each component is a vector with the positions or the rownames, if available, of the duplicates coordinates.

The method for geodata returns a data-frame with rownames equals to the positions of the duplicated coordinates, the first column is a factor indicating duplicates and the remaning are output of as.data.frame.geodata.

## "forcing" some duplicated locations
