Select points inside a polygon
A points data set
A polygon data set
If points fall exactly on polygon boundaries, the default NULL gives arbitrary assignments. If TRUE, then all points "on" boundaries are set as within the polygon, if FALSE, outside.
Do not report which points are on boundary for non-NULL bound
inpip returns a vector of indices of the points in
pts that are located
in the polygon. Note that "in" is an arbitrary concept for points "on" the polygon boundary.
