Description

Given a triangulation object tri.obj of n points in the plane, this subroutine returns a logical vector indicating if the points (x_i,y_i) lay on or in the convex hull of tri.obj.

Usage

1
2
on.convex.hull(tri.obj, x, y, eps=1E-16)
in.convex.hull(tri.obj, x, y, eps=1E-16, strict=TRUE)

Arguments

tri.obj

object of class triSht

x

vector of x-coordinates of points to locate

y

vector of y-coordinates of points to locate

eps

accuracy for checking the condition

strict

logical, default TRUE. It indicates if the convex hull is treated as an open (strict=TRUE) or closed (strict=FALSE) set. (applies only to in.convex.hull)

Value

Logical vector.

q.tri<-tri.mesh(quakes.part$lon, quakes.part$lat, duplicate="remove")
on.convex.hull(q.tri,quakes.part$lon[1:20],quakes.part$lat[1:20])
# Check with part of data set:
# Note that points on the hull (see above) get marked FALSE below:
in.convex.hull(q.tri,quakes.part$lon[1:20],quakes.part$lat[1:20])
# If points both on the hull and in the interior of the hull are meant 
# disable strict mode:
in.convex.hull(q.tri,quakes.part$lon[1:20],quakes.part$lat[1:20],strict=FALSE)
# something completely outside:
in.convex.hull(q.tri,c(170,180),c(-20,-10))
