# Extract.linnet: Extract Subset of Linear Network In spatstat.linnet: Linear Networks Functionality of the 'spatstat' Family

 Extract.linnet R Documentation

## Extract Subset of Linear Network

### Description

Extract a subset of a linear network.

### Usage

```  ## S3 method for class 'linnet'
x[i, ..., snip=TRUE]
```

### Arguments

 `x` A linear network (object of class `"linnet"`). `i` Spatial window defining the subregion. An object of class `"owin"`. `snip` Logical. If `TRUE` (the default), segments of `x` which cross the boundary of `i` will be cut by the boundary. If `FALSE`, these segments will be deleted. `...` Ignored.

### Details

This function computes the intersection between the linear network `x` and the domain specified by `i`.

This function is a method for the subset operator `"["` for linear networks (objects of class `"linnet"`). It is provided mainly for completeness.

The index `i` should be a window.

The argument `snip` specifies what to do with segments of `x` which cross the boundary of `i`. If `snip=FALSE`, such segments are simply deleted. If `snip=TRUE` (the default), such segments are cut into pieces by the boundary of `i`, and those pieces which lie inside the window `i` are included in the resulting network.

### Value

Another linear network (object of class `"linnet"`).

### Examples

```  p <- par(mfrow=c(1,2), mar=0.2+c(0,0,1,0))
B <- owin(c(0.1,0.7),c(0.19,0.6))

plot(simplenet, main="x[w, snip=TRUE]")
plot(simplenet[B], add=TRUE, col="green", lwd=3)
plot(B, add=TRUE, border="red", lty=3)

plot(simplenet, main="x[w, snip=FALSE]")
plot(simplenet[B, snip=FALSE], add=TRUE, col="green", lwd=3)
plot(B, add=TRUE, border="red", lty=3)

par(p)
```
