##### Find Pixel Nearest to a Given Point

Given cartesian coordinates, find the nearest pixel.

Keywords
manip, spatial
##### Usage
nearest.raster.point(x,y,w, indices=TRUE)
##### Arguments
x

Numeric vector of $x$ coordinates of any points

y

Numeric vector of $y$ coordinates of any points

w

An image (object of class "im") or a binary mask window (an object of class "owin" of type "mask").

indices

Logical flag indicating whether to return the row and column indices, or the actual $x,y$ coordinates.

##### Details

The argument w should be either a pixel image (object of class "im") or a window (an object of class "owin", see owin.object for details) of type "mask".

The arguments x and y should be numeric vectors of equal length. They are interpreted as the coordinates of points in space. For each point (x[i], y[i]), the function finds the nearest pixel in the grid of pixels for w.

If indices=TRUE, this function returns a list containing two vectors rr and cc giving row and column positions (in the image matrix). For the location (x[i],y[i]) the nearest pixel is at row rr[i] and column cc[i] of the image.

If indices=FALSE, the function returns a list containing two vectors x and y giving the actual coordinates of the pixels.

##### Value

If indices=TRUE, a list containing two vectors rr and cc giving row and column positions (in the image matrix). If indices=FALSE, a list containing vectors x and y giving actual coordinates of the pixels.
