Window Frame

Extract the window frame of a window or other spatial dataset

Keywords
manip, spatial
Usage
as.rectangle(w, ...)
Arguments
w
A window, or a dataset that has a window. Either a window (object of class "owin"), a pixel image (object of class "im") or other data determining such a window.
...
Optional. Auxiliary data to help determine the window. If w does not belong to a recognised class, the arguments w and ... are passed to as.owin to determ
Details

This function is the quickest way to determine a bounding rectangle for a spatial dataset.

If w is a window, the function just extracts the outer bounding rectangle of w as given by its elements xrange,yrange.

The function can also be applied to any spatial dataset that has a window: for example, a point pattern (object of class "ppp") or a line segment pattern (object of class "psp"). The bounding rectangle of the window of the dataset is extracted.

Use the function bounding.box to compute the smallest bounding rectangle of a dataset.

Value

  • A window (object of class "owin") of type "rectangle" representing a rectangle.

  # returns a 10 x 10 rectangle
