nowrapSpatialLines: Split SpatialLines components at offset

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) Examples

View source: R/recenter.R

Description

When recentering a world map, most often from the "Atlantic" view with longitudes with range -180 to 180, to the "pacific" view with longitudes with range 0 to 360, lines crossing the offset (0 for this conversion) get stretched horizonally. This function breaks Line objects at the offset (usually Greenwich), inserting a very small gap, and reassembling the Line objects created as Lines. A similar function for polygons is found in the spgpc package.

Usage

1
nowrapSpatialLines(obj, offset = 0, eps = rep(.Machine$double.eps, 2))

Arguments

obj

A Spatial Lines object

offset

default 0, untried for other values

eps

vector of two fuzz values, both default double.eps

Value

A Spatial Lines object
