Arguments

coords

list with in each element a numeric matrix or data.frame with coordinates (each row representing a point); in case of SpatialMultiPointsDataFrame an object of class SpatialMultiPoints-class is also allowed

proj4string

projection string of class CRS-class

bbox

bounding box matrix, usually NULL and constructed from the data, but may be passed through for coercion purposes if clearly needed

data

object of class data.frame; the number of rows in data should equal the number of points in the coords object

match.ID

logical or character; if missing, and coords and data both have row names, and their order does not correspond, matching is done by these row names and a warning is issued; this warning can be suppressed by setting match.ID to TRUE. If TRUE AND coords has non-automatic rownames (i.e., coerced to a matrix by as.matrix, dimnames(coords)[[1]] is not NULL), AND data has row.names (i.e. is a data.frame), then the SpatialMultiPointsDataFrame object is formed by matching the row names of both components, leaving the order of the coordinates in tact. Checks are done to see whether both row names are sufficiently unique, and all data are matched. If FALSE, coordinates and data are simply "glued" together, ignoring row names. If character: indicates the column in data with coordinates IDs to use for matching records. See examples below.

Value

SpatialMultiPoints returns an object of class SpatialMultiPoints; SpatialMultiPointsDataFrame returns an object of class SpatialMultiPointsDataFrame;
