Percentile

Divide a Measure into Parts

Decomposes a measure into components, each component being a measure.

Keywords
manip, spatial
Usage
# S3 method for msr
split(x, f, drop = FALSE, …)
Arguments
x

Measure (object of class "msr") to be decomposed.

f

Factor or tessellation determining the decomposition. Argument passed to split.ppp. See Details.

drop

Logical value indicating whether empty components should be retained in the list (drop=FALSE, the default) or deleted (drop=TRUE).

Ignored.

Details

An object of class "msr" represents a signed (i.e. real-valued) or vector-valued measure in the spatstat package. See msr for explanation.

This function is a method for the generic split. It divides the measure x into components, each of which is a measure.

A measure x is represented in spatstat by a finite set of sample points with values attached to them. The function split.msr divides this pattern of sample points into several sub-patterns of points using split.ppp. For each sub-pattern, the values attached to these points are extracted from x, and these values and sample points determine a measure, which is a component or piece of the original x.

The argument f can be missing, if the sample points of x are multitype points. In this case, x represents a measure associated with marked spatial locations, and the command split(x) separates x into a list of component measures, one for each possible mark.

Otherwise the argument f is passed to split.ppp. It should be either a factor (of length equal to the number of sample points of x) or a tessellation (object of class "tess" representing a division of space into tiles) as documented under split.ppp.

Value

A list, each of whose entries is a measure (object of class "msr").
