##### Insert New Vertices in a Linear Network

Adds new vertices to a linear network at specified locations along the network.

Keywords
manip, spatial
##### Usage
insertVertices(L, …)
##### Arguments
L

Linear network (object of class "linnet") or point pattern on a linear network (object of class "lpp").

Additional arguments passed to as.lpp specifying the positions of the new vertices along the network.

##### Details

This function adds new vertices at locations along an existing linear network.

The argument L can be either a linear network (class "linnet") or some other object that includes a linear network.

The new vertex locations can be specified either as a point pattern (class "lpp" or "ppp") or using coordinate vectors x,y or seg,tp or x,y,seg,tp as explained in the help for as.lpp.

This function breaks the existing line segments of L into pieces at the locations specified by the coordinates seg,tp and creates new vertices at these locations.

The result is the modified object, with an attribute "id" such that the ith added vertex has become the id[i]th vertex of the new network.

##### Value

An object of the same class as L representing the result of adding the new vertices. The result also has an attribute "id" as described in Details.

# NOT RUN {

# add two new vertices at specified local coordinates

plot(vertices(L)[id], add=TRUE, pch=16)

# add new vertices at three randomly-generated points
X <- runiflpp(3, simplenet)
LL <- insertVertices(simplenet, X)
plot(LL, main="")
plot(vertices(LL), add=TRUE)
ii <- attr(LL, "id")
plot(vertices(LL)[ii], add=TRUE, pch=16)
