pip

0th

Percentile

Return points inside or outside a polygon.

Keywords
spatial
Usage
pip(pts,poly,out=FALSE,bound=NULL,quiet=TRUE)
Arguments
pts
A points data set
poly
A polygon data set
out
If out=TRUE, return the points outside the polygon, else the points inside.
bound
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.
quiet
Do not report which points are on boundary for non-NULL bound
Details

pip calls inout, then selects the appropriate sub-set of points.

Value

pip returns the points of pts that lie inside (or outside with out=TRUE) the polygon poly. Compare this with inpip, which returns the indices of the points in the polygon, and inout which returns a logical vector indicating whether points are inside or outside.
