getCentroid: Calculate the centroid of a polygon.

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References Examples

Description

This function takes a list of dataframes or a matrices containing x and y values, which define zones (polygons), and calculates their centroids.

Usage

1

Arguments

data

A matrix or a dataframe with two columns, for x and y coordinates

Details

Most of the coordinates for the intersection labels in this package were calculated using the formula for a centroid of a non-self-intersecting closed polygon, approximated by 10 vertices.

Value

A list with x and y coordinates, for each zone in the input list.
