Compute Minimum or Maximum Nearest-Neighbour Distance

Description

A faster way to compute the minimum or maximum nearest-neighbour distance in a point pattern.

Usage

1
2
minnndist(X, positive=FALSE)
maxnndist(X, positive=FALSE)

Arguments

X

A point pattern (object of class "ppp").

positive

Logical. If FALSE (the default), compute the usual nearest-neighbour distance. If TRUE, ignore coincident points, so that the nearest neighbour distance for each point is greater than zero.

Details

These functions find the minimum and maximum values of nearest-neighbour distances in the point pattern X. minnndist(X) and maxnndist(X) are equivalent to, but faster than, min(nndist(X)) and max(nndist(X)) respectively.

The value is NA if npoints(X) < 2.

Value

A single numeric value (possibly NA).
