Spatial Dimension of a Dataset

Extracts the spatial dimension of an object in the spatstat package.

Usage
spatdim(X, intrinsic=FALSE)
Arguments
X

Object belonging to any class defined in the spatstat package.

intrinsic

Logical value indicating whether to return the number of intrinsic dimensions. See Details.

Details

This function returns the number of spatial coordinate dimensions of the dataset X. The results for some of the more common types of objects are as follows:

object class dimension
"ppp" 2
"lpp" 2
"pp3" 3
"ppx" number of spatial dimensions
"owin" 2
"psp" 2

Note that time dimensions are not counted.

Some spatial objects are lower-dimensional subsets of the space in which they live. This lower number of dimensions is returned if intrinsic=TRUE. For example, a dataset on a linear network (an object X of class "linnet", "lpp", "linim", "linfun" or "lintess") returns spatdim(X) = 2 but spatdim(X, intrinsic=TRUE) = 1.

If X is not a recognised spatial object, the result is NA.

Value

An integer, or NA.
