project2set: Find Nearest Point in a Region

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/exactPdt.R

Description

For each data point in a point pattern X, find the nearest location in a given spatial region W.

Usage

1
  project2set(X, W, ...)

Arguments

X

Point pattern (object of class "ppp").

W

Window (object of class "owin") or something acceptable to as.owin.

...

Arguments passed to as.mask controlling the pixel resolution.

Details

The window W is first discretised as a binary mask using as.mask.

For each data point X[i] in the point pattern X, the algorithm finds the nearest pixel in W.

The result is a point pattern Y containing these nearest points, that is, Y[i] is the nearest point in W to the point X[i].

Value

A point pattern (object of class "ppp") with the same number of points as X in the window W.
