Distance Map

Compute the distance map of an object, and return it as a pixel image. Generic.

Keywords
spatial, math
Usage
distmap(X, …)
Arguments
X

Any suitable dataset representing a two-dimensional object, such as a point pattern (object of class "ppp"), a window (object of class "owin") or a line segment pattern (object of class "psp").

Arguments passed to as.mask to control pixel resolution.

Details

The “distance map” of a set of points \(A\) is the function \(f\) whose value f(x) is defined for any two-dimensional location \(x\) as the shortest distance from \(x\) to \(A\).

This function computes the distance map of the set X and returns the distance map as a pixel image.

This is generic. Methods are provided for point patterns (distmap.ppp), line segment patterns (distmap.psp) and windows (distmap.owin).

Value

A pixel image (object of class "im") whose grey scale values are the values of the distance map.
