distm: Distance matrix

Description

Distance matrix of a set of points, or between two sets of points

Usage

distm(x, y, fun=distHaversine)

Arguments

x
longitude/latitude of point(s). Can be a vector of two numbers, a matrix of 2 columns (first one is longitude, second is latitude) or a SpatialPoints* object
y
Same as x. If missing, y is the same as x
fun
A function to compute distances (e.g., distCosine, distHaversine, distVincenty*)

Value

Matrix of distances
