Snap a set of points to a set of lines
This function snaps a set of points to a set of lines based on the minimum distance of each point to any of the lines. This function does not work with geographic coordinates.
snapPointsToLines(points, lines, maxDist = NA, withAttrs = TRUE, idField=NA)
- An object of the class SpatialPoints or SpatialPointsDataFrame.
- An object of the class SpatialLines or SpatialLinesDataFrame.
- Numeric value for establishing a maximum distance to avoid snapping points that are farther apart. This parameter is optional.
- Boolean value for preserving (TRUE) or getting rid (FALSE) of the original point attributes. Default: TRUE. This parameter is optional.
- A string specifying the field which contains each line's id. This id will be transferred to the snapped points data set to distinguish the line which each point was snapped to.
- SpatialPointsDataFrame object as defined by the R package 'sp'. This object contains the snapped points, therefore all of them lie on the lines.

Looks like there are no examples yet.
