Orientation Angles of Line Segments

Share:

Description

Computes the orientation angle of each line segment in a line segment pattern.

Usage

1
  angles.psp(x, directed=FALSE)

Arguments

x

A line segment pattern (object of class "psp").

directed

Logical flag. See details.

Details

For each line segment, the angle of inclination to the x-axis (in radians) is computed, and the angles are returned as a numeric vector.

If directed=TRUE, the directed angle of orientation is computed. The angle respects the sense of direction from (x0,y0) to (x1,y1). The values returned are angles in the full range from -pi to pi. The angle is computed as atan2(y1-y0,x1-x0). See atan2.

If directed=FALSE, the undirected angle of orientation is computed. Angles differing by pi are regarded as equivalent. The values returned are angles in the range from 0 to pi. These angles are computed by first computing the directed angle, then adding pi to any negative angles.

Value

Numeric vector.
