# shift.owin

##### Apply Vector Translation To Window

Applies a vector shift to a window

##### Usage

```
# S3 method for owin
shift(X, vec=c(0,0), …, origin=NULL)
```

##### Arguments

- X
Window (object of class

`"owin"`

).- vec
Vector of length 2 representing a translation.

- …
Ignored

- origin
Character string determining a location that will be shifted to the origin. Options are

`"centroid"`

,`"midpoint"`

and`"bottomleft"`

. Partially matched.

##### Details

The window is translated by the vector `vec`

.
This is a method for the generic function `shift`

.

If `origin`

is given, then it should be one of the character
strings `"centroid"`

, `"midpoint"`

or `"bottomleft"`

.
The argument `vec`

will be ignored; instead the shift will be performed
so that the specified geometric location is shifted to the origin.
If `origin="centroid"`

then the centroid of the window will be
shifted to the origin. If `origin="midpoint"`

then the centre of
the bounding rectangle of the window will be shifted to the origin.
If `origin="bottomleft"`

then the bottom left corner of the
bounding rectangle of the window will be shifted to the origin.

##### Value

Another window (of class `"owin"`

) representing the
result of applying the vector shift.

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
W <- owin(c(0,1),c(0,1))
X <- shift(W, c(2,3))
# }
# NOT RUN {
plot(W)
# no discernible difference except coordinates are different
# }
# NOT RUN {
shift(W, origin="mid")
# }
```
