Linear K Function

Computes an estimate of the linear $K$ function for a point pattern on a linear network.

Keywords
spatial, nonparametric
Usage
linearK(X, r=NULL, ..., correction="Ang")
Arguments
X
Point pattern on linear network (object of class "lpp").
r
Optional. Numeric vector of values of the function argument $r$. There is a sensible default.
...
Ignored.
correction
Geometry correction. Either "none" or "Ang". See Details.
Details

This command computes the linear $K$ function from point pattern data on a linear network.

If correction="none", the calculations do not include any correction for the geometry of the linear network. The result is the network $K$ function as defined by Okabe and Yamada (2001).

If correction="Ang", the pair counts are weighted using Ang's correction (Ang, 2010; Ang et al, 2012).

Value

  • Function value table (object of class "fv").
