A tessellation is a collection of disjoint spatial regions
(called tiles) that fit together to form a larger spatial
region. This command creates an object of class "tess"
that
represents a tessellation.
Three types of tessellation are supported:
tiles are rectangles, with sides parallel to the x
and
y
axes. They may or may not have equal size and shape.
The arguments xgrid
and ygrid
determine
the positions of the vertical and horizontal grid lines,
respectively. (See quadrats
for another way to do this.)
tiles are arbitrary spatial regions.
The argument tiles
is a list of these tiles,
which are objects of class "owin"
.
Tiles are subsets of a fine grid of pixels.
The argument image
is a pixel image (object of class
"im"
) with factor values. Each level of the factor
represents a different tile of the tessellation. The pixels that
have a particular value of the factor constitute a tile.
The optional argument window
specifies the spatial region
formed by the union of all the tiles. In other words it specifies the
spatial region that is divided into tiles by the tessellation.
If this argument is missing or NULL
, it will be determined by
computing the set union of all the tiles. This is a time-consuming
computation. For efficiency it is advisable to specify the window.
Note that the validity of the window will not be checked.
Empty tiles may occur, either because one of the entries in the list
tiles
is an empty window, or because one of the levels of the
factor-valued pixel image image
does not occur in the pixel data.
When keepempty=TRUE
, empty tiles are permitted.
When keepempty=FALSE
(the default), tiles are not allowed to be
empty, and any empty tiles will be removed from the tessellation.
There are methods for print
, plot
, [
and [<-
for tessellations. Use tiles
to extract the list of
tiles in a tessellation, tilenames
to extract the names
of the tiles, and tile.areas
to compute their
areas.
The tiles may have marks, which can be extracted by
marks.tess
and changed by marks<-.tess
.
Tessellations can be used to classify the points of
a point pattern, in split.ppp
, cut.ppp
and
by.ppp
.

To divide space into pieces containing equal
amounts of stuff, use quantess
.
To convert a tessellation to a function, for use as a spatial covariate
(associating a numerical value with each tile of the tessellation) use
as.function.tess
.
