# hextess

##### Hexagonal Grid or Tessellation

Construct a hexagonal grid of points, or a hexagonal tessellation.

##### Usage

`hexgrid(W, s, offset = c(0, 0), trim = TRUE)`hextess(W, s, offset = c(0, 0), trim = TRUE)

##### Arguments

- W
- Window in which to construct the hexagonal grid or tessellation.
An object of class
`"owin"`

. - s
- Side length of hexagons. A positive number.
- offset
- Numeric vector of length 2 specifying a shift of the hexagonal grid. See Details.
- trim
- Logical value indicating whether to restrict the result to
the window
`W`

. See Details.

##### Details

`hexgrid`

constructs a hexagonal grid of points
on the window `W`

. If `trim=TRUE`

(the default),
the grid is intersected with `W`

so that all points lie
inside `W`

. If `trim=FALSE`

, then we retain all grid points
which are the centres of hexagons that intersect `W`

.

`hextess`

constructs a tessellation of hexagons
on the window `W`

. If `trim=TRUE`

(the default),
the tessellation is restricted to the interior of `W`

,
so that there will be some fragmentary hexagons near the
boundary of `W`

. If `trim=FALSE`

, the tessellation
consists of all hexagons which intersect `W`

.

The points of `hexgrid(...)`

are the
centres of the tiles of `hextess(...)`

in the same order.
In the initial position of the grid or tessellation,
one of the grid points (tile centres) is placed at the midpoint
of the bounding rectangle of `W`

. The grid can be shifted
by specifing the `offset`

.

##### Value

- The value of
`hexgrid`

is a point pattern (object of class`"ppp"`

).The value of

`hextess`

is a tessellation (object of class`"tess"`

).

##### Examples

```
if(interactive()) {
W <- as.owin(chorley)
s <- 0.7
} else {
W <- letterR
s <- 0.3
}
plot(hextess(W, s))
plot(hexgrid(W, s), add=TRUE)
```
