Sample annulus

Creates sample points based on annulus with defined inner and outer radius

Usage
sample.annulus(x, r1, r2, n = 10, ...)
Arguments
x

sp SpatialPoints or SpatialPointsDataFrame class object

r1

Numeric value defining inner radius of annulus (in projection units)

r2

Numeric value defining outer radius of annulus (in projection units)

n

Number of samples

...

Additional arguments passed to spsample

Value

sp SpatialPointsataFrame OBJECT

Note

Function can be used for distance based sampling. This is a sampling method that can be used to capture spatially lagged variation.
