Coordinates of Points Inside a Polygon

This function builds a rectangular grid and extracts points which are inside of an internal polygonal region.

Keywords
spatial
Usage
polygrid(xgrid, ygrid, borders, vec.inout = FALSE, ...)
Arguments
xgrid

grid values in the x-direction.

ygrid

grid values in the y-direction.

borders

a matrix with polygon coordinates defining the borders of the region.

vec.inout

logical. If TRUE a logical vector is included in the output indicating whether each point of the grid is inside the polygon. Defaults to FALSE.

...

currently not used (kept for back compatibility).

Details

The function works as follows: First it creates a grid using the R function expand.grid and then it uses the geoR' internal function .geoR_inout() which wraps usage of SpatialPoints and over from the package sp to extract the points of the grid which are inside the polygon.

Within the package geoR this function is typically used to select points in a non-rectangular region to perform spatial prediction using krige.bayes, krige.conv or ksline. It is also useful to produce image or perspective plots of the prediction results.

Value

A list with components:

xypoly

an \(n \times 2\) matrix with the coordinates of the points inside the polygon.

vec.inout

logical, a vector indicating whether each point of the rectangular grid is inside the polygon. Only returned if vec.inout = TRUE.
