Details

This is a method for the generic function intensity It computes the empirical intensity of a point pattern (object of class "ppp"), i.e. the average density of points per unit area.

If the point pattern is multitype, the intensities of the different types are computed separately.

Value

• A numeric value (giving the intensity) or numeric vector (giving the intensity for each possible type).
