Create SpatialLines* or SpatialPolygons*

Helper functions to simplify the creation of SpatialLines* or SpatialPolygons* objects from coordinates.

Keywords
spatial
Usage
spLines(x, ..., attr=NULL, crs=NA) 
spPolygons(x, ..., attr=NULL, crs=NA)
Arguments
x

matrix of list with matrices. Each matrix must have two columns with x and y coordinates (or longitude and latitude, in that order). Multi-line or multi-polygon objects can be formed by combining matrices in a list

...

additional matrices and/or lists with matrices

attr

data.frame with the attributes to create a *DataFrame object. The number of rows must match the number of lines/polgyons

crs

the coordinate reference system (PROJ4 notation)

Value

SpatialLines* or SpatialPolygons*
