Eire data sets

The Eire data set has been converted to shapefile format and placed in the etc/shapes directory. The initial data objects are now stored as a SpatialPolygonsDataFrame object, from which the contiguity neighbour list is recreated. For purposes of record, the original data set is retained.

The eire.df data frame has 26 rows and 9 columns. In addition, polygons of the 26 counties are provided as a multipart polylist in eire.polys.utm (coordinates in km, projection UTM zone 30). Their centroids are in eire.coords.utm. The original Cliff and Ord binary contiguities are in eire.nb.
