Usage

Point pattern (object of class "ppp").

checkdup

Details

A useful summary of the point pattern object is printed.

This is a method for the generic function summary.

If checkdup=TRUE, the pattern will be checked for the presence of dublicate points, using duplicated.ppp. This can be time-consuming if the pattern contains many points, so the checking can be disabled by setting checkdup=FALSE.
