# incircle: Find Largest Circle Inside Window In spatstat.geom: Geometrical Functionality of the 'spatstat' Family

## Description

Find the largest circle contained in a given window.

## Usage

 ```1 2 3``` ```incircle(W) inradius(W) ```

## Arguments

 `W` A window (object of class `"owin"`).

## Details

Given a window `W` of any type and shape, the function `incircle` determines the largest circle that is contained inside `W`, while `inradius` computes its radius only.

For non-rectangular windows, the incircle is computed approximately by finding the maximum of the distance map (see `distmap`) of the complement of the window.

## Value

The result of `incircle` is a list with entries `x,y,r` giving the location `(x,y)` and radius `r` of the incircle.

The result of `inradius` is the numerical value of radius.
