Distance Map

Compute the distance map of an object, and return it as a pixel image. Generic.

Keywords
spatial, math
Usage
distmap(X, ...)
Arguments
X
Any suitable dataset representing a two-dimensional object, such as a point pattern (object of class "ppp"), a window (object of class "owin") or a line segment pattern (object of class "psp").
...
Arguments passed to as.mask to control pixel resolution.
Details

The distance map of a set of points $A$ is the function $f$ whose value f(x) is defined for any two-dimensional location $x$ as the shortest distance from $x$ to $A$.

This function computes the distance map of the set X and returns the distance map as a pixel image. This is generic. Methods are provided for point patterns (distmap.ppp), line segment patterns (distmap.psp) and windows (distmap.owin).

Value

  • A pixel image (object of class "im") whose grey scale values are the values of the distance map.
