sample.line

0th

Percentile

Systematic or random point sample of line(s)

Creates a systematic or random point sample of an sp SpatialLinesDataFrame object based on distance spacing, fixed size or proportional size

The sdist argument will produce an evenly spaced sample, whereas n produces a fixed sized sample. The p (proportional) argument calculates the percent of the line-length. The LID column in the @data slot corresponds to the row.names of the SpatialLinesDataFrame object.

Usage
sample.line(
  x,
  d = 100,
  p = NULL,
  n = NULL,
  type = "regular",
  longlat = FALSE,
  min.samp = 1,
  ...
)
Arguments
x

sp class SpatialLinesDataFrame object

d

Sample distance. For regular sample.

p

Proportional sample size (length * p), expected value is 0-1. For regular or random.

n

Fixed sample size. For regular or random

type

Defines sample type. Options are "regular" or "random". A regular sample results in a systematic, evenly spaced sample.

longlat

TRUE/FALSE is data in geographic units, if TRUE distance is in kilometers

min.samp

Minimal number of sample points for a given line (default is 1 point)

...

Additional argument passed to spsample

Value

sp SpatialPointsDataFrame object.
