Convert sp line and polygon objects to PBSmapping PolySet objects

Functions SpatialLines2PolySet and SpatialPolygons2PolySet convert objects of sp classes to PolySet class objects as defined in the PBSmapping package, and PolySet2SpatialLines and PolySet2SpatialPolygons convert in the opposite direction.

Keywords

SpP

a SpatialPolygons object as defined in the sp package

PS
