```

`spgeom1, spgeom2` |
sp objects as defined in package sp. |

The closest points of the two geometries or NULL on exception. The first point comes from spgeom1 geometry and the second point comes from spgeom2.

gDistance

```
g1 <- readWKT("MULTILINESTRING((34 54, 60 34), (0 10, 50 10, 100 50))")
g2 <- readWKT("MULTIPOINT(30 0, 100 30)")
plot(g1, pch=4, axes=TRUE)
plot(g2, add=TRUE)
plot(gNearestPoints(g1, g2), add=TRUE, col="red", pch=7)
gDistance(g1, g2)
