point.in.polygon | R Documentation |

verifies for one or more points whether they fall in a given polygon

```
point.in.polygon(point.x, point.y, pol.x, pol.y, mode.checked=FALSE)
```

`point.x` |
numerical array of x-coordinates of points |

`point.y` |
numerical array of y-coordinates of points |

`pol.x` |
numerical array of x-coordinates of polygon |

`pol.y` |
numerical array of y-coordinates of polygon |

`mode.checked` |
default FALSE, used internally to save time when all the other argument are known to be of storage mode double |

integer array; values are: 0: point is strictly exterior to pol; 1: point is strictly interior to pol; 2: point lies on the relative interior of an edge of pol; 3: point is a vertex of pol.
