Description

Compute DE9-IM relation between pairs of geometries, or match it to a given pattern

Usage

1
st_relate(x, y, pattern = NA_character_, sparse = !is.na(pattern))

Arguments

x

object of class sf, sfc or sfg

y

object of class sf, sfc or sfg

pattern

character; define the pattern to match to, see details.

sparse

logical; should a sparse matrix be returned (TRUE) or a dense matrix?

Value

In case pattern is not given, st_relate returns a dense character matrix; element [i,j] has nine characters, referring to the DE9-IM relationship between x[i] and y[j], encoded as IxIy,IxBy,IxEy,BxIy,BxBy,BxEy,ExIy,ExBy,ExEy where I refers to interior, B to boundary, and E to exterior, and e.g. BxIy the dimensionality of the intersection of the the boundary of x[i] and the interior of y[j], which is one of 0,1,2,F, digits denoting dimensionality, F denoting not intersecting. When pattern is given, a dense logical matrix or sparse index list returned with matches to the given pattern; see st_intersection for a description of the returned matrix or list.
