Percentile

Recursively Partitioned Point Process Model

Fits a recursive partition model to point pattern data.

Keywords
models, spatial
Usage
rppm(…, rpargs=list())
Arguments

Arguments passed to ppm specifying the point pattern data and the explanatory covariates.

rpargs

Optional list of arguments passed to rpart controlling the recursive partitioning procedure.

Details

This function attempts to find a simple rule for predicting low and high intensity regions of points in a point pattern, using explanatory covariates.

The arguments specify the point pattern data and explanatory covariates in the same way as they would be in the function ppm.

The recursive partitioning algorithm rpart is then used to find a partitioning rule.

Value

An object of class "rppm". There are methods for print, plot, fitted, predict and prune for this class.
