Computes an estimate of the linear pair correlation function for a point pattern on a linear network.
linearpcf(X, r=NULL, ..., correction="Ang", ratio=FALSE)
Point pattern on linear network (object of class
Optional. Numeric vector of values of the function argument r. There is a sensible default.
Arguments passed to
This command computes the linear pair correlation function from point pattern data on a linear network.
The pair correlation function is estimated from the
shortest-path distances between each pair of data points,
using the fixed-bandwidth kernel smoother
with a bias correction at each end of the interval of r values.
To switch off the bias correction, set
The bandwidth for smoothing the pairwise distances
is determined by arguments
density.default, mainly the arguments
adjust. The default is
to choose the bandwidth by Silverman's rule of thumb
bw="nrd0" explained in
correction="none", the calculations do not include
any correction for the geometry of the linear network. The result is
an estimate of the first derivative of the
network K function defined by Okabe and Yamada (2001).
correction="Ang", the pair counts are weighted using
Ang's correction (Ang, 2010). The result is an estimate of the
pair correlation function in the linear network.

ratio=TRUE then the return value also has two
containing the numerators and denominators of each
estimate of g(r).
