Find the largest circle contained in a given window.

Keywords
spatial, math
Usage
incircle(W)
Arguments
W
A window (object of class "owin").
Details

Given a window W of any type and shape, this function determines the largest circle that is contained inside W.

For non-rectangular windows, the incircle is computed approximately by finding the maximum of the distance map (see distmap) of the complement of the window.

Value

• A list with entries x,y,r giving the location (x,y) and radius r of the incircle.

• incircle
Examples
W <- square(1)
Wc <- incircle(W)
plot(W)
plot(disc(Wc$r, c(Wc$x, Wc$y)), add=TRUE) data(letterR) plot(letterR) Rc <- incircle(letterR) plot(disc(Rc$r, c(Rc$x, Rc$y)), add=TRUE)

plot(disc(Rc$r, c(Rc$x, Rc\$y)), add=TRUE)
