Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/nearest.R

Description

This function finds the nearest lat/long pairs to another lat/long pair. So in the york building and york crime context, writing nearest(york_crime,york) reads as "find the nearest crime in york to each building in york, and returns a dataframe with every building in york, the nearest york_crime to each building, and the distance in metres between the two. Likewise, you could write nearest(york, york_crime), and this would return the nearest building to every crime. nearest assumes that the names of the latitude and longitude are "lat" and "long", but you can provide these names.
