spattemp.slice: Slicing a spatiotemporal object

View source: R/spattemp.slice.R

Description

Takes slices of the spatiotemporal kernel density or relative risk function estimate at desired times

Usage

1
spattemp.slice(stob, tt, checkargs = TRUE)

Arguments

stob

An object of class stden or rrst giving the spatiotemporal estimate from which to take slices.

tt

Desired time(s); the density/risk surface estimate corresponding to which will be returned. This value must be in the available range provided by stob$tlim; see ‘Details’.

checkargs

Logical value indicating whether to check validity of stob and tt. Disable only if you know this check will be unnecessary.

Details

Contents of the stob argument are returned based on a discretised set of times. This function internally computes the desired surfaces as pixel-by-pixel linear interpolations using the two discretised times that bound each requested tt.

The function returns an error if any of the requested slices at tt are not within the available range of times as given by the tlim component of stob.

Value

A list of lists of pixel images, each of which corresponds to the requested times in tt, and are named as such.
If stob is an object of class stden:

z

Pixel images of the joint spatiotemporal density corresponding to tt.

z.cond

Pixel images of the conditional spatiotemporal density given each time in tt.

If stob is an object of class rrst:

rr

Pixel images of the joint spatiotemporal relative risk corresponding to tt.

rr.cond

Pixel images of the conditional spatiotemporal relative risk given each time in tt.

P

Only present if tolerate = TRUE in the preceding call to spattemp.risk. Pixel images of the p-value surfaces for the joint spatiotemporal relative risk.

P.cond

Only present if tolerate = TRUE in the preceding call to spattemp.risk. Pixel images of the p-value surfaces for the conditional spatiotemporal relative risk.
