Proximity Index

Calculates proximity index for a set of polygons

Usage
proximity.index(x, y = NULL, min.dist = 0, max.dist = 1000, background = NULL)
Arguments
x

A polygon class sp or sf object

y

Optional column in data containing classes

min.dist

Minimum threshold distance

max.dist

Maximum neighbor distance

background

Optional value in y column indicating background value

Value

A vector equal to nrow(x) of proximity index values, if a background value is specified NA values will be returned in the position(s) of the specified class
