Predict Point Process Model on Linear Network

Given a fitted point process model on a linear network, compute the fitted intensity or conditional intensity of the model.

## S3 method for class 'lppm':
predict(object, ..., type = "trend", locations = NULL)
The fitted model. An object of class "lppm", see lppm.
Type of values to be computed. Either "trend", "cif" or "se".
Optional. Locations at which predictions should be computed. Either a data frame with two columns of coordinates, or a binary image mask.
Optional arguments passed to as.mask to determine the pixel resolution (if locations is missing).

This function computes the fitted poin process intensity, fitted conditional intensity, or standard error of the fitted intensity, for a point process model on a linear network. It is a method for the generic predict for the class "lppm".

The argument object should be an object of class "lppm" (produced by lppm) representing a point process model on a linear network.

Predicted values are computed at the locations given by the argument locations. If this argument is missing, then predicted values are computed at a fine grid of points on the linear network.

  • Iflocationsis missing orNULL(the default), the return value is a pixel image (object of class"linim"which inherits class"im") corresponding to a discretisation of the linear network, with numeric pixel values giving the predicted values at each location on the linear network.
  • Iflocationsis a data frame, the result is a numeric vector of predicted values at the locations specified by the data frame.
  • Iflocationsis a binary mask, the result is a pixel image with predicted values computed at the pixels of the mask.


  • A pixel image (object of class "linim" which inherits class "im") or a numeric vector, depending on the argument locations. See Details.
