Adjacency matrix. A matrix or sparse matrix
of logical values equal to
Edge list. A two-column matrix of integers,
specifying all pairs of vertices
that should be joined by an edge.
Optional. Logical value indicating whether to use a sparse matrix representation of the network. See Details.
Logical value indicating whether to issue a warning if the resulting network is not connected.
An object of class
"linnet" represents a network of
straight line segments in two dimensions. The function
such an object from the minimal information: the spatial location
of each vertex (endpoint, crossing point or meeting point of lines)
and information about which vertices are joined by an edge.
sparse=FALSE (the default), the algorithm will compute
and store various properties of the network, including
the adjacency matrix
m and a matrix giving the
shortest-path distances between each pair of vertices in the network.
This is more efficient for small datasets. However it can require
large amounts of memory and can take a long time to execute.
sparse=TRUE, then the shortest-path distances will not be computed,
and the network adjacency matrix
m will be stored as a
sparse matrix. This saves a lot of time and memory when creating the
If the argument
edges is given, then it will also determine
the ordering of the line segments when they are stored or extracted.
