Vertices of a Window

Finds the vertices of a window, or similar object.

Keywords

Usage
vertices(w)

# S3 method for owin vertices(w)

Arguments
w

A window (object of class "owin") or similar object.

Details

This function computes the vertices (`corners') of a spatial window or other object.

For vertices.owin, the argument w should be a window (an object of class "owin", see owin.object for details).

If w is a rectangle, the coordinates of the four corner points are returned.

If w is a polygonal window (consisting of one or more polygons), the coordinates of the vertices of all polygons are returned.

If w is a binary mask, then a `boundary pixel' is defined to be a pixel inside the window which has at least one neighbour outside the window. The coordinates of the centres of all boundary pixels are returned.

Value

A list with components x and y giving the coordinates of the vertices.
