topo-unary-gMinumumRotatedRectangle: Centroid of Geometry

Description Usage Arguments Details Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Returns the minimum rotated rectangular POLYGON which encloses the input geometry.

Usage

1
gMinumumRotatedRectangle(spgeom, byid=FALSE, id = NULL)

Arguments

spgeom

sp object as defined in package sp

byid

Logical determining if the function should be applied across subgeometries (TRUE) or the entire object (FALSE)

id

Character vector defining id labels for the resulting geometries, if unspecified returned geometries will be labeled based on their parent geometries' labels.

Details

Returns the minimum rotated rectangular POLYGON which encloses the input geometry. The rectangle has width equal to the minimum diameter, and a longer length. If the convex hill of the input is degenerate (a line or point) a LINESTRING or POINT is returned. The minimum rotated rectangle can be used as an extremely generalized representation for the given geometry.
