nbcosts: Compute cost of edges

Description Usage Arguments Value Note Author(s) See Also

Description

The cost of each edge is the distance between it nodes. This function compute this distance using a data.frame with observations vector in each node.

nbcost(data, id, id.neigh,  method = c("euclidean", "maximum", 
    "manhattan", "canberra", "binary", "minkowski", "mahalanobis"),
    p = 2, cov, inverted = FALSE)
nbcosts(nb, data,  method = c("euclidean", "maximum", 
    "manhattan", "canberra", "binary", "minkowski", "mahalanobis"),
    p = 2, cov, inverted = FALSE)

Arguments

nb

An object of nb class. See poly2nb for details.

data

A matrix with observations in the nodes.

id

Node index to compute the cost

id.neigh

Idex of neighbours nodes of node id

method

Character or function to declare distance method. If method is character, method must be "mahalanobis" or "euclidean", "maximum", "manhattan", "canberra", "binary" or "minkowisk". If method is one of "euclidean", "maximum", "manhattan", "canberra", "binary" or "minkowisk", see dist for details, because this function as used to compute the distance. If method="mahalanobis", the mahalanobis distance is computed between neighbour areas. If method is a function, this function is used to compute the distance.

p

The power of the Minkowski distance.

cov

The covariance matrix used to compute the mahalanobis distance.

inverted

logical. If 'TRUE', 'cov' is supposed to contain the inverse of the covariance matrix.

Value

A object of nbdist class. See nbdists for details.

Note

The neighbours must be a connected graph.
