cell2nb: Generate neighbours list for grid cells

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/cellneighbours.R

Description

The function generates a list of neighbours for a grid of cells. Helper functions are used to convert to and from the vector indices for row and column grid positions, and rook (shared edge) or queen (shared edge or vertex) neighbour definitions are applied by type. If torus is TRUE, the grid is mapped onto a torus, removing edge effects.

Usage

1
2
cell2nb(nrow, ncol, type="rook", torus=FALSE, legacy=FALSE, x=NULL)
vi2mrc(i, nrow, ncol)

Arguments

nrow

number of rows in the grid, may also be an object inheriting from class "SpatialGrid" or "GridTopology" only in cell2nb

ncol

number of columns in the grid; if nrow or x is an object inheriting from class "SpatialGrid" or "GridTopology", it may be omitted

type

default rook, may also be queen

torus

default FALSE, if TRUE map grid onto torus

legacy

default FALSE, nrow/ncol reversed, if TRUE wrong col/row directions (see https://github.com/r-spatial/spdep/issues/20)

x

if given, an object inheriting from class "SpatialGrid" or "GridTopology", and replaces nrow and ncol

i

vector of vector indices corresponding to rowcol, a matrix with two columns of row, column indices

Value

The function returns an object of class nb with a list of integer vectors containing neighbour region number ids. See card for details of “nb” objects.
