hypervolume_pruneR Documentation

Removes small hypervolumes from a HypervolumeList

Description

Identifies hypervolumes characterized either by a number of uniformly random points or a volume below a user-specified value and removes them from a HypervolumeList.

This function is useful for removing small features that can occur stochastically during segmentation after set operations or hole detection.

Usage

hypervolume_prune(hvlist, num.points.min = NULL, volume.min = NULL, return.ids=FALSE)

Arguments

hvlist

A HypervolumeList object.

num.points.min

The minimum number of points in each input hypervolume.

volume.min

The minimum volume in each input hypervolume

return.ids

If TRUE, returns indices of input list as well as a pruned hypervolume list

Details

Either minnp or minvol (but not both) must be specified.

Value

A HypervolumeList pruned to only those hypervolumes of sizes above the desired value. If returnids=TRUE, instead returns a list structure with first item being the HypervolumeList and the second item being the indices of the retained hypervolumes.

hv = hypervolume_gaussian(penguins_adelie,name='Adelie')

hv_segmented <- hypervolume_segment(hv, 
                          num.points.max=200, distance.factor=1,
                          check.memory=FALSE) # intentionally under-segment
