Description

Construct an array of detectors on a triangular grid and optionally select a hexagonal subset of detectors.

make.tri (nx = 10, ny = 12, spacing = 20, detector = "multi",
    originxy = c(0,0))

clip.hex (traps, side = 20, centre = c(50, 60*cos(pi/6)),
    fuzz = 1e-3, ID = "num", ...)

Arguments

nx

number of columns of detectors

ny

number of rows of detectors

spacing

distance between detectors (x and y directions)

detector

character value for detector type - "single", "multi" etc.

originxy

vector origin for x-y coordinates

traps

traps object

side

length of hexagon side

centre

x-y coordinates of hexagon centre

fuzz

floating point fuzz value

ID

character string to control row names

...

other parameters passed to subset.traps (not used)

Details

make.tri generates coordinates for nx.ny traps at separations spacing. The bottom-left (southwest) corner is at originxy. Identifiers are numeric. See make.grid for further explanation.

clip.hex clips a grid of detectors, retaining only those within a bounding hexagon. Detectors are re-labelled according to ID as follows:

ID Effect
NULL no change
num numeric sequence
alpha letter for`shell'; number within shell

Value

An object of class traps comprising a data frame of x- and y-coordinates, the detector type ("single", "multi", or "proximity" etc.), and possibly other attributes.

Note

Several methods are provided for manipulating detector arrays - see traps.
